($90) Deep red. Expressive aromas of dark cherry, blackcurrant, Indian spices and smoky herbs. Round, supple dark fruit flavors coat the palate, sweetened by suave vanilla and cola qualities. Gains firmness on the focused, long finish. This could use some time to stretch out but is already quite impressive.

Transparent crimson. Straightforward ripe fruit that seems to belong more to the traditional bottling than special cuvée camp on the nose. Nice wine with real vivacity and ripe fruit and harmony but it reminds me more of some of the best straightforward traditional bottlings than a special cuvée. Masses of alcohol on the finish…. 80 year old vines on average apparently.

The dense ruby/purple-colored, full-bodied 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige offers up notes of licorice, kirsch liqueur, lavender, and spice box. It is a superbly concentrated, opulent, flamboyant wine to drink now and over the next 15+ years.

This is very alluring, with warm raspberry confiture gliding over incense, spice bread and fig sauce notes. The long, silky finish has nice dark licorice and black tea notes. Fine-grained and persistent. Drink now through 2028. 1,250 cases made.
