($49) Bright red. Suave, precise red berry and cherry aromas are complemented by dried flowers, herbs and minerals. Fat and gently sweet, with vivid red fruit flavors and easygoing tannins. Very pretty and easy to drink, with excellent finishing lift and persistence.

The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape a blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, and the rest Mourvedre and Cinsault, aged in tank (20%) and old wood foudres (80%), reveals classic Provencal typicity with its notes of sweet black cherries, lavender, licorice, roasted herbs, and meat. Soft and lush with a luxurious mouthfeel as well as a stunningly silky texture, this beauty can be enjoyed over the next 10-12 years.

High-toned, with cherry and red currant fruit laced with shiso leaf, mineral, sandalwood and spice notes. The finish is supple but persistent.

Raspberry bubble gum, kirsch, spice, and briar, with good tannic structure and medium glycerin. Come back to it in a few years. Lots of hair on the teeth now.

Site Blog: Unidentified Appellation The base cuvee of Usseglio offers up a pleasant and unique saline minerality note in the nose that I did not detect in any other ?06, alongside a rock solid palate of black cherries, underbrush and mouth watering acidity. The freshness and perfume reminds me of ?04 immediately, and the fine length suggests some positive evolution ahead
