The seductive bouquet offers attractive aromas of grilled meat fresh earth and sweet soy sauce. Fruit focused on the palate medium-full-bodied flavors of kirsch lead into fine spicy tannins to provide a lip-smacking finish. Aging will make this even better.

The deep ruby/purple-colored 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape (90% tank-aged Grenache and 10% barrel-aged Syrah from 65-year-old vines) appears to have resolved all the tannins that stood out last year. Notes of black cherry liqueur licorice tobacco leaf bouquet garni roasted meats and peppery spice emerge from this full-bodied luscious Chateauneuf meant for drinking over the next 10-12 years.

Toasted wood and spice notes fill in on the finish. Drink now...
