The level of concentration, potential longevity, and pleasure climb considerably with the 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee. Powerful, tannic, and in need of 3-4 years of cellaring, it emphasizes traditional characteristics of black cherry jam, spice, dried herbs, and meat. This muscular offering should be at its best between 2003-2018.
