    ($70) Ruby-red. Spicy red fruits on the nose, complicated by tapenade, lavender and espresso. Very fresh and sweet, with energetic red and dark fruit flavors, suggestions of garrigue and supple tannins. Finishes deep and sappy, with a lingering cherry pit note clinging tenaciously.

    A real powerhouse, with muscular layers of fig and black currant compote, backed by braised beef, chestnut, tobacco and tar flavors. The long, mesquite-filled finish lets additional bittersweet cocoa and dark fruit notes linger, with lots of garrigue. 5,000 cases made.

    One of the clear standouts in the vintage, the Feraud's 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee (which includes a splash of Grenache Blanc in the blend) offers both stunning aromatic complexity paired with a voluptuous, supple and downright sexy profile on the palate. Loaded with classic Pegau spice, tobacco leaf, saddle leather, cured meats and lavender aromas and flavors, this beauty has no hard edges, full-bodied richness and weight, and a seamless finish that keeps you coming back to the glass. A wine that hasn't shut down since bottling, it should continue to evolve gracefully for another decade at least. This is one of those wines you don't want to miss.

    Opened two hours ahead, little brett; not quite opaque, rich, medium ripe dark, deep plum, some nice earth, sweet/ripe notes with silky tannins and balanced acidity and fine sediment.

    Dark red with slight garnet rim. Very pronounced sour cherries, leather and some tobacco. All enveloped in dark fruit aromas. The flavors showing strongest are dark fruit components such as blackberry and black cherry with a bit of blackpepper and molasses. Soft and gripping tannins, medium acidity and a long multi-layered finish.

    I've tasted this wine on 4 separate occasions and this has to be the best showing yet (which is a great sign for you guys that loaded up on this vintage). It has continued to pout on weight in the bottle and flirted w/ some exotic character yesterday evening that I had not detected from previous tastings. Surprisingly developed notes of deep, dark currant, meadow herbs, grilled beef, brewed coffee, cocoa and a touch of boysenberry highlight the profile of this young Chateauneuf. This showing demonstrated more sinew, persistence and opulence than previous tastings and left me very optimistic about the potential of this young wine

    Sticky and dirty on the nose with plenty of primary fig, plum, black pepper, cranberry, and cola. Full mouthfeel with some excess acid and tannin that will hopefully integrate.

    We drank this with dinner quest on 11/1/09. Everyone loved it. It had a fabulous nose of violet, cherry, earth, sage and spice aromas. The palate was exceptionally smooth, refined and balanced with cherry, sage, spice and coca flavors. It was not nearly as big as I expected...just incredibly delicious.
