($40) Deep red. Very ripe nose offers intense red berry aromas and distinctly meaty, musky garrigue accents. Very rich and deep, with powerful, jammy raspberry and cherry flavors, dusty tannins and a long, chocolatey finish. Picks up some exotic spice notes on the back, which add vivacity to this chewy, somewhat brooding animal.

The 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as a sweet nose of new saddle leather, garrigue, pepper, kirsch, and blackberries. Dense, full-bodied, and tasty, it is best drunk during its first decade of life.

Not a lot of fruit and way too much barnyard. May have been a bad bottle. Having a hard time getting excited about opening the other bottle, though.

Don't know what to make of this wine. So different from anything that I've tasted before. Different & interesting is what everyone that drank this commented on. Fruity but with a lot of must, hints of mint.. multiple flavors and many layers... hard to say whether I like this or not. Perhaps needs more time to evolve?
