    ($50) Inky ruby. Fresh raspberry and cherry preserve aromas are complicated by lavender and rose. Smoky herbs come up with air and carry onto the palate, accenting deep red fruit flavors. Nicely focused wine, with an energetic, tangy finish and good persistence.

    The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape is comprised of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre. Aged 16 months in mostly concrete tanks (30% in barrels), its inky ruby/purple color is followed by rocking notes of blackcurrants, toasted spice and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and gorgeously pure, this is high-class stuff that's still just at the early stages of maturity. Drink this beauty anytime over the coming decade.

    Thick and sweet. Rich and savoury - surely the Pape Clement of the southern Rh“ne because the wines are very very pleasing - just perhaps a bit too facile for purists? Rich and ripe and smoother. Long.

    This is broad-shouldered, with lots of dark olive, fig, currant and beef flavors supported by tarry tannins that show excellent drive through the finish, where extra raspberry and graphite notes linger.
