    Winemaker's Notes:

    The true nature of this wine is expressed by its greatest virtue: simplicity. A blend of 70% Grenache, 25% Syrah, and the rest Mourvedre, Cinsault and other grapes, this vintage is yet another vintage that never ceases to impress.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape (70% Grenache, 25% Syrah, and the rest Mourvedre, Cinsault and other grapes) was given the same upbringing as the 2008. Its dark ruby/plum color is followed by sweet aromas of raspberries, black cherries, forest floor and Provencal herbs. Attractive and soft with light to moderate tannin as well as medium to full body, it should drink nicely for 10-12 years.
    Range: 90-92

    Ruby-red. Smoky cherry and red berry aromas, with hints of licorice and spice in the background. Spicy and focused on entry, then deeper in the mid-palate, offering juicy redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors with a touch of succulent herbs. The smoky note comes back on the pungent finish, which is taut, brisk and very persistent.
