Opened up slightly raisiny but evolved into something very nice. 12 years old and already established terschiary notes of sandalwood, smoked meats, dried cherry and sage. It was such a big and plush wine in its youth (almost like Paso Grenache) but it has really turned into chateauneuf du pape

Exceptional ruby color - youthful in every way. Bacon fat, garrigue, Strawberries and an earthy sensuality. Phenomenal

You need wait at least an hour to experience this full throttle. While it may start out as a solid CdP, it flourishes into a beauty of a wine that might easily be compared to a Bordeaux. Elegant notes of oak, earth, currant, tobacco and meat are all intertwined into a fabulously smooth palate. I was distraught at the last glass, but was able to buy another bottle!
