    ($110) Saturated medium ruby. Superripe aromas of cassis, blackberry, violet and roasted nuts; if some past vintages of this wine have been Burgundian in style, this is classic roasted Chateauneuf du Pape, but with more black than red fruits. Large-scaled, thick and explosive in the mouth, with lush flavors of black fruits, creme de framboise and minerals and firm underlying structure. Wonderfully sweet, dense and long on the aftertaste, with big but fine tannins. (Kysela Pere & Fils, Winchester, VA)

    More youthful and backwards, the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de La Reine des Bois has been incredibly consistent for me and always comes in near the top of the scale. Black raspberry, blackberry, wood smoke, licorice, crushed rock-like minerality and smoked beef are just some of the nuances here, and it hits the palate with serious levels of fruit, thrilling structure and blockbuster length. It still needs another handful of years to hit full maturity, but its off-the-hook good today (assuming you're not completely against tannin).

    Well-made in an elegant style. Clean, pure and focused; a lovely red packed with spices (nutmeg, cinnamon), coffee and plum. Smooth tannins, refined finish. Firm backbone will keep it aging gracefully, but this medium-bodied red is tempting now. 1,500 cases made.

    Phone Justin Smith of Saxum because the sexy pick for this wine was that it was his Rocket Block. Well, California dreaming aside, the profile of this wine was frank and exquisitely ripe. No shortage of melted licorice, raspberry ganache, cr?me de cassis, fig pudding and coffee notes caressed the palate in a rich palate full of sweet tannin and big time muscle. Although there is a hefty coat of flesh on its bones, the wine is still a tad on the tight side and became a bit more abrupt towards the finish, suggesting a bit of cellaring is in order. Little did we know, this was none other than Mordoree?s Reine des Bois 2001, a three digit Parker gem that we all anointed as a baby Californian (which to me, isn'tnecessarily a terrible thing).
