Smoky, dark red berries, herbs, pepper and spice pop on the nose. Medium-bodied, fresh, wild and meaty, with a boatload of chewy fruit on the palate, there is length, lift and freshness here. The wine was made using mostly Grenache and Mourvedre, with Syrah, Cinsaut and Counoise to top it off. Give it a few years in the cellar before popping the cork. Drink from 2025 - 2036

The licorice and black cherry smell as good as they taste. Long, with garrigue and spice box notes kicking in at just the right time, this should age nicely. The wine was made using 60% Grenache, 25% Mourvedre, 5% Syrah, 5% Cinsaut and 5% Counoise.

Early drinking, open, medium bodied, soft textured wine. The character here is about the peppery, kirsch and strawberry center with nuances of underbrush, herbs and olives.

5 spice, incense and black cherries led off the wine. There is good freshness and intensity in the mid palate and finish. Give it a few years to develop more complexity. From a blend of 70% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre and 10% Counoise, the wine reached 14.5 ABV.

I'm still on my young Chateauneuf kick and most of the wines from 2010 have been stellar. This was no exception with its ripe, lusty, peppery black raspberries, herb and earthy personality. Rich and intense, the luscious, ripe finish is filled with spicy, jammy, dark red fruits. As good it is now, it's only going to get better with a few years of age.

Ripe, round, lush and with perfectly ripe black cherries, plums, black raspberries, wet earth and 5 spice aromatics, this is drinking well today. If you like young Grenache blends, pull a cork and enjoy it, for its ripe, forward fruit.

Blending 65% old vine Grenache with 25% Mourvedre, Syrah and other assorted Rhone varieties produced a lush, jammy Chateauneuf du Pape filled with sweet, ripe, black cherry, kirsch, pepper , earth and black raspberry. This modern styled Chateauneuf du Pape is already fun to drink most Southern Rhones from 2007.

Fully mature and rocking it, with its earthy, barnyard, kirsch and garrigue aromatics. Rich, ripe, vibrant and lush, the is more than enough ripe, black and red fruits in the finish to keep it all interesting. If the horse or barnyard aromas were a little less potent, the wine would have received a higher score. Beauty for this wine is going to be in the eyes of the beholder.

Drinking at perfection, this beauty was driving on all 12 cylinders with its rich, depth of flavor. Ripe, sweet, spicy fresh berries, full bodied, concentrated and long, there is a lot to like about this wine. Still young, it should drink at this level for at least another decade.

Garrigue, kirsch, wet earth, the perfect touch of barnyard and a hint of over ripe strawberry is the perfect way to let you know you are in Chateauneuf du Pape. Rich, silky and bordering on lush, the wine ends with wild cherry liqueur complicated by a touch of green olive tapenade. Popped, poured and rockin'! This is drinking at absolute perfection. There is no reason to wait to pop a cork. I'm happy to have more in the cellar.

Provencal herbs, black pepper, licorice, spice, black raspberry and black cherry aromas lead to a fully mature, concentrated, Chateauneuf du Pape. This wine was a little more exciting in previous tastings. I'm going to drink my last remaining bottle sooner than later.
