    ($151) Dark purple. The nose offers a kaleidoscopic bouquet of dark berry preserves, Asian spices, incense and fresh flowers. Impressively deep and velvety, with sweet blackcurrant and boysenberry flavors and gentle mineral lift. Really stains the palate, finishing with outstanding cling and sappy persistence. The oak spice, which was so noticeable and bothersome to me last year, seems to have been nearly completely absorbed. Mea culpa.

    Packed with layers of fig, raspberry and blackberry confiture flavors, this is long and fleshy, with lots of racy graphite and sweet cocoa notes. The long, ripe, defined finish shows great grip, with encores of fruit and minerality. 1,100 cases made.

    So oaky on the nose! Very dark purplish. Blind, this would be difficult to identify definitely as Chƒteauneuf I'm afraid.

    The Delorme Brother's 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de la Reine des Bois has been incredibly consistent for me, and is always an upper-90s scoring wine. A big, full-bodied, structured effort, its inky purple color is followed by a terrific bouquet of ripe black fruits, toasted spice, graphite, chocolate and garrigue. Made from 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre and the rest 5% Vaccarese, brought up 30% in barrels and 70% in stainless steel, it will have another 10-15 years of prime drinking.

    Deep purple, almost black in color. Great aroma of dark fruit (cherry and currant and blackberry) with underlying floral, spice and herbal scents. On the palate the wine showed its full bodied, meaty character with strong, but excellently blended tannins. Great, long lasting finish.
