Winemaker's Notes

(From 2007 Vintage) "The blockbuster 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Sixtine (55% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 15% Mourvedre from 50- to 105-year-old vines) boasts an inky/purple color as well as a sensational perfume of camphor, graphite, black currants, black cherries, licorice, and smoke.

The long, graphite- and licorice-filled finish glides along beautifully, with solid grip in reserve...93" WS 10/09 "Vivid ruby. Powerful, ripe scents of red and dark berry compote, cola, licorice and fruitcake. Broad, sweet dark berry flavors show a distinctly warm, liqueur-like personality but betray no rough edges...92" IWC 1/10 (hide)
