Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2005

$109

A complex nose of resiny pine forest notes intermixed with black raspberry, sweet kirsch, licorice and lavender jumps from the glass of this deep ruby/purple-colored wine. Full-bodied, powerful, rich, and tannic, this wine begs for 4-5 years of bottle age and should keep for 25+ years. Robert Parker

Drinking fantastically well. Concentrated, complex, yet beautifully balanced -- this is classic CdP in a great spot right now...

I'm a buzzkill. Spiced but pruney and over extracted. Eh.

Dark ruby, almost opaque. Plum, kirsch, smoke, anise in the nose. Impact in the mouth is over the top. Heavy and heated. Lots of fruit and structure but not my kind of wine.

Wow is this a fantastic wine -- deep, complex, powerful yet balanced. Just showing wonderfully now, but still some room to grow

Started with remarkable fresh fruit that melted into cured meat and darkness as it opened. As remarkable as it is comforting.

Solid not spectacular. Under-performed vs. my expectation. A little flabby.
