The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape is a sexy, delicious concoction of roasted herbs, ground pepper, sweet kirsch, and blacker fruits presented in a lush, accessible, seductive style.
International Wine CellarMedium ruby. Powerful red berry and musky herbs on the nose, with a bright mineral quality adding energy. Tangy redcurrant and strawberry flavors are finely etched and impressively fresh, with good mineral lift to the finish. I suspect that this will gain weight with a couple more years of aging.
