($400) Inky ruby. Pungent, strongly perfumed bouquet of ripe dark berries, cherry compote, olive and floral oils. Smooth, palate-coating mulberry and kirsch flavors are complicated by candied lavender and rose qualities that gain power with aeration. The floral element dominates the very long, spicy, strikingly pure finish. This is extremely sexy now but clearly destined for a long life.

Grenache Noir 60%, Syrah 20%, Cinsault 10%, Vaccarese 10%Tarry and rich. Lively and rather floral fruit with excellent balance. Not the most dramatic wine, but there is great balance here. And enormous energy too. I don’t see how anyone would be disappointed by this wine. What a lovely drink!

On another level, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Combe des Fous is a monumental bottle of wine that-s hardly budged since I first tasted it on release. Giving up heavenly aromas and flavors of black raspberries, cassis, incense, cured meats and exotic spices, this incredible effort flows onto the palate with a layered, impeccably balanced profile that carries massive concentration, polished tannin and a crazy length. Despite searching for something to be critical of, I came up empty.

This has gorgeous aromas and mouthfeel, with freshly brewed Mocha Java, warm fig and incense notes up front, followed by dark, macerated currant and cherry fruit. The long finish is velvety and suave, with hints of mesquite, loam, licorice snap and sweet earth that just sail on.

Stellar juice. Balanced, big, berry, minerals, leather, earth, lingering finish ... Smooth and powerful. This is a fun and evolving wine in the glass. The 2007 and 2005 from this house are just remarkable. Seek this one out! I have a few in the cellar and I'm excited to see how it evolves over the next decade. It's has plenty of heft to go the distance and will likely be better with a few more years under its belt.
