Heady and loaded, but defined, with stunning depth and intensity to the pastis-soaked plum, blackberry and cherry fruit flavors, lined with brick dust, baker's chocolate, espresso and smoldering tobacco. Long and tarry through the finish, but lush and alluring at the same time. A backdrop of chestnut and cedar adds even more range and character. A huge wine with amazing balance. Best from 2015 through 2035. – JM

No Cuvee da Capo was made in 2009 but the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee da Capo is composed of 80-85% Grenache and the rest a field blend of the other permitted varietals (Syrah Mourvedre Muscardin Terret Noir Counoise Vaccarese etc.). It is fashionable to compare the newest Capo with a previous vintage and for me the 2010 resembles 2007 more than their 2003 2000 or 1998. The stunningly rich 2010 has close to 16% natural alcohol and will be bottled after spending 18 months in old wood foudres. Notions of ripe figs kirsch liqueur cedar Christmas fruitcake smoked meats charcuterie and beef blood are present in this staggeringly complex rich full-throttle massive intense wine. Drink it over the next 20-30 years.

Glass-staining purple. Exotically perfumed expansive bouquet evokes candied red and dark berries Indian spices potpourri and woodsmoke.

Exotically perfumed expansive bouquet evokes candied red and dark berries Indian spices potpourri and woodsmoke. Deep broad and intense offering sappy raspberry and boysenberry flavors given spine by juicy acidity. Clings with outstanding tenacity finishing with smoky spice and floral notes.

Extremely sweet and lively. Racy, dense, notable tannins, extremely vivacious. Long and very rich indeed, even though the residual sugar is actually less than 1 g/l apparently. A loud wine. 18.5/20
