($40; 14.8% alcohol) Full ruby-red. Liqueur-like aromas of black raspberry, black cherry and licorice. Lush, fat and full in the mouth, with superb concentration and richness. A seamless wine with great Chateauneuf du Pape character. Complicating notes of tar and chocolate. Finishes with dusty, broad tannins and great persistence. This can be enjoyed now with the right dishes but should age gracefully.

The 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee may be one of the few 2000s that is better than its 1998 counterpart. A deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by sweet aromas of creme de cassis, kirsch liqueur, cedar, licorice, and pepper. It smells like an open-air Provencal market. Sweet, fat, opulent, and voluptuous, with fabulous fruit concentration, sweet tannin, and a long, 45+ second finish, this powerful, deep, seamless 2000 is impeccably well-balanced. A tour de force in traditional Chateauneuf du Pape, it is accessible now, but should age easily for 15-20 years.

Beautiful traditional Chateauneuf, all built around mineral, smoke, leather and plum aromas. Good balance in this medium- to full-bodied red thanks to the clean, fresh fruit. The tannins are ripe but clamp down on the finish--a wine created for a great steak! 5,000 cases made.

From garrigue, to beef blood, asian spices and some kind of cool asian soy flavor after a few hours. Very nice to see how these mature and gain complexity.

My wife and I celebrated our 5th Anniversary @ Stage Restaurant in Honolulu and I brought this bottle. What a beautiful wine! The waiter broke the cork in half and I successfully extracted the remainder. The second I put my nose in the bowl of the glass I knew this was going to sing. Indeed it did. Classic garrigue, spice, hint of smoke, rich flavors that changed and enticed throughout the evening. On pointe, Superlative!
