Complex spice-accented bouquet of cherry dark berry and dried flowers with a hint of anise emerging with air. Deeply pitched blackberry and bitter cherry flavors are lifted by tangy acidity and show a suave floral nuance. Finishes juicy and long with very good clarity and lingering spiciness.

Another wine that shows the vintage characteristics beautifully, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape gives up loads of kirsch, sweet blackberries, garrigue and peppery herbs in its full-bodied, rich, concentrated and structured personality. There’s ample tannin here, so give it another year or two in the cellar. - Jeb Dunnuck

A blend of 80% Grenache 10% Syrah 6% Mourvèdre and the balance a mix of varieties aged mainly in cask the 2009 Clos du Mont-Olivet Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a pretty very traditional Châteauneuf-du-Pape that possesses a garrigue licorice and spice-driven profile that's supported by quality cherry and assorted darker fruits. This medium to full-bodied beauty has a focused clean texture good acidity and a streamlined age-worthy feel. While there's not a wealth of material to play with this has an energetic lively feel and should benefit from 2-3 years in the cellar with 10-12 years of longevity.
