    ($84) Deep ruby. Wild array of red and dark berry, fresh floral and incense aromas. Cherry-vanilla and cola flavors are deep and sweet but surprisingly fresh and lively, with suave minerality extending through the finish. This is delicious now. (Wines of France, Mountainside, NJ)

    A gorgeous beam of creme de cassis runs through this silky, rich red, which also sports licorice, black tea and raspberry ganache notes. The long, fine-grained finish lets the fruit play out, almost leaving a heady impression, but the minerality sits in reserve and keeps this honest.

    The dense ruby/purple-tinged, full-bodied, powerful, rich 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Petits Pieds d'Armand offers up notions of sweet black cherry and raspberry fruit, licorice, smoke, and earth. It is similar to the 2006, but possesses more acidity and tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020+. When Olivier Hillaire dissolved his partnership with Domaine des Relagnes, he took one of their top vineyard parcels, Les Petits Pieds d'Armand, with him. Hillaire is a multi-talented gentleman as not only is he a skilled winemaker, but he also owns the finest bakery in the village of Chateauneuf du Pape.

    Blow away good! Decanted and left open for 90 minutes before starting to drink.

    More sinewy and provocative than the gushing ?06, the 2005 has a bit firmer, more backward personality and greater potential complexity. There are touches of sea salt, anise, raspberry preserve, cr?me de cassis and fresh rosemary notes to be found churning against some brawny, formidable tannins. I believe this is currently a caged animal and will lash out, more intensely and profoundly as it ages in the bottle
