    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine has a beautiful red dress with bright violet highlights. The nose is very aromatic and both elegant and complex. It is elegant and long in the mouth. A powerful wine with the potential to cellar for several years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Distinctly old-school, showing a smoldering edge of charcoal and roasted mesquite to the core of dense plum and black currant fruit, with hoisin sauce and bittersweet cocoa notes. There's good drive on the finish, where the roasted wood edge lingers. Best from 2013 through 2020.

    Wine Spectator

    Deep ruby. Heady aromas of raspberry preserves, lavender and mocha, with a spicy overtone. Juicy and deeply concentrated, offering sappy red and dark berry flavors that become spicier with air. Dusty tannins add grip to the very long, chewy, penetrating finish. This youthful wine has barely budged since last year and appears to be built for the long haul.

    More refined, polished and elegant, the medium to full-bodied 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Chante Le Merle Vieilles Vignes possesses complex garrigue notes intermixed with black currant, black cherry and raspberry as well as licorice and seaweed wrapper (nori). Eighty percent Grenache and the rest equal parts Syrah and Mourvedre from 92+ year-old vines, this wine is delicious already, and should continue to evolve for another 10-12 years.
