The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Speciale which includes 100% stems from a vineyard planted in pure sand in the Courthezon sector of Chateauneuf du Pape has the classic kirsch liqueur notes with licorice pine forest notes and plenty of pepper. It is a noble full-bodied style of Chateauneuf du Pape with superb purity and length.

Rich with a sappy intensity to the cassis and red plum fruit that pumps through pushed by red licorice raspberry ganache and incense notes. The long detailed finish lets additional mocha and roasted vanilla hints chime...

Ruby-red. Seductive aromas of raspberry Asian spices smoky minerals and potpourri. Lively red fruit flavors show a silky texture and good mineral tang. A vivacious seamless wine that's delicious right now. -Josh Raynolds
