    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep dark red. A spicy nose with mature red fruits. Round tannins with powerful complexity. A rich unctuous wine with notes of mature plums, hazelnuts and red fruits. A very rich wine full of harmony and balance.

    Critical Acclaim:

    There are some wines that silence the panel with their greatness, wines that knock us back in our seats to stare, slack jawed. This is one of them. It's not just that it's huge, mouthfilling in flavor and tough as nails; it's more that it's incredibly succulent, as if built out of some sort of stone that gives up juice. For all its intensity and ferrous minerality, it remains fresh, the red fruit and spice seeming to go on forever.

    The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape is a must buy. It boasts a deep plum/ruby color as well as a rich bouquet of blackberries, kirsch, spice box, pepper, grilled herbs, and meat juices. With supple tannins, full body, and beautiful texture and depth, it should drink nicely for 10-15 years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Deep red. Complex aromas of dried red berries, garrigue, Asian spices and rose. Spicy red fruit flavors are firmed by fine-grained tannins and complemented by notes of succulent herbs and smoky spices. Well-structured but not hard, finishing with very good clarity, sappiness and lingering florality.
