Elegant and extremely perfumed, a nice juicy red fruit core featuring ripe cherries, raspberries, and strawberries, followed by dried lavender, meaty beef jus, orange peel, undergrowth, sweet tobacco, charcoal, and intense black pepper. Delicious sweet red fruit flavors on entry with some dried apricots that lead to a umami rich midpalate filled with meaty notes, iron, and a slightly saline minerality that intermingles with intense peppery notes that linger for some time. Incredible silky mouth feel on this midbodied red, very light in structure but intense in flavors.

The 2004 Rayas forces you to work for it but offers a great reward. Meaty with a touch of funk under a berry dominated fruit profile, ultimately a very complex, compelling, and satisfying wine that benefits with a little time in the glass. #wopn2015

A lean Grenache. Roasted meats and spices yet light red fruits.

2004 Chateau Rayas Chateauneuf-du-Pape Reserve - elegant and youthful red fruits and tea. Showing well now but will age gracefully for another decade.

Needs time. Even with a 5 hour decant. Excellent but will get better.

Smoky and leathery on the nose with stewy fruit cake. Lush raspberry and blackberry coat the palate along with fennel. Polished, creamy tannins and a hint of graphite grace the finish.
