Much better than the previous, bottle. Popped & poured, as the wine opened in the glass, the sensual textures really took hold. The ripe, juicy, spicy, kirsch and black cherry shined, from start to finish. Concentrated, full bodied and with no hard edges, this is drinking in the sweet spot.

Ready to go at 9 years of age. Soft, silky, kirsch fruits, garrigue and peppery notes. Medium bodied, elegant and developed, I'm drinking my remaining bottles over the next 5 years or so. I really like the way this feels and tastes, but it does not seem to have a lot of stuffing remaining for long term aging. This wine seems to be on a faster evolutionary curve than it was, only a few short years ago.

With a perfume redolent of jammy black cherries, fresh strawberry, pepper, herbs and a hint of fennel, this full bodied Chateauneuf du Pape offers a lot of bang for the buck. Richly textured, with a finish filled with soft dark, spicy cherries. This is fully mature and will probably show best over the next 2-5 years. This would show very well in blind tastings against more expensive wines, 92 Pts
