Just as good, yet more classic in style, the 2006 Cote Rotie Chateau d’Ampuis offers up full-bodied richness and loads of texture to go with knockout aromas and flavors of creme de cassis, licorice, violets and assorted wild flower-like qualities.

Red and dark berry preserves and spice cake on the nose, with complicating floral qualities that gain strength with air.

Still a touch tight this builds slowly with tangy red and black currant fruit married to dark olive notes. There's a tarry edge on the finish with lingering iron and espresso notes that gain steam nicely as they air in the glass. Drink now through 2019. 2500 cases made. -JM
