    Winemaker's Notes:

    Château La Nerthe's Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge is a complex and concentrated blend of Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah and other Rhone varietals. It is true to La Nerthe's reputation for intense, long lived wines.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Elegant for the vintage, with a silky texture to the raspberry, boysenberry and plum fruit, all layered with sweet spice, mesquite and fruitcake notes. Has a long, supple finish. Drink now through 2020.

    Wine Spectator

    The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition (50% Grenache, 31% Syrah, and the rest Mourvedre and Cinsault) exhibits a deep ruby/purple color along with a gorgeously sweet perfume of cassis, black cherries, smoke, roasted herbs, and licorice. It is soft, round, full-bodied, opulent, and accessible, which is somewhat out of character for this virile/masculine and tannic vintage. The 2005 Tradition should drink beautifully for 10-15 years.

    Wine tasted very oxydized for a 2005, as if it were left open for a week. Took two sips and moved on to another bottle.
