International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 136

($70) Inky ruby. Ripe, powerful boysenberry and blueberry aromas are deepened by musky tobacco and dark chocolate. Weighty dark berry flavors verge on thick; initially brooding but brightens with air, picking up an energetic, stony character. Red fruits build on a long, sappy finish. A serious style, and not for those who demand elegance.

Wine Advocate Author: Jeb Dunnuck Issue: 214

The most masculine and structured of the group, the 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape is locked and loaded, with serious concentration, big tannin and no shortage of length on the finish. Coming from a year that featured a cool summer and then scorching temps around harvest, this beauty doles out loads of creme de cassis, licorice, graphite and crushed rock-like minerality, as well as a seamless, perfectly balanced profile. Give it another 2-3 years and drink it through 2025.

Wine Spectator Author: James Molesworth

Showing beautifully, with intense fig, black currant and boysenberry fruit and dark chocolate, date bread, spice and mineral notes. This is both powerful and pure at the same time, with a superlong finish. Seriously structured. 1,900 cases made.

on opening oaky and alcoholic and very purple, no signs of bricking. nose improves over a few hours but still is muted without the typical garrigue. buy pegau for much mess...not sure what the fuss is over this producer
