($85-$95) Deep ruby. Seductive dark berry and kirsch aromas are complicated by musky garrigue, black olive and dark chocolate. Dense blackberry and bitter cherry flavors stain the palate and develop a licorice character with air. Tightens up on the long, chewy finish, which is dominated by tangy red berry fruit. This hugely concentrated wine deftly combines liveliness and power.

The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee (normally a blend of approximately 80% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Mourvedre) exhibits a deep ruby/plum/garnet hue along with lots of grilled meat juices, roasted Provencal herbs, tar, blackberries and black currants. The wine is medium to full-bodied, still firm and tannic. It is those tannins that make the 2005 somewhat reminiscent of a tight, more austere-styled vintage such as 1995.

This has plenty of gutsy blackberry and fig fruit up front, along with notes of pepper, licorice, Turkish coffee and garrigue. Superlong finish lets roasted herb and beef notes check in, while gaining even more depth as it airs. Not quite as much range as the awesome '03/'04 combo, but has the intense grip of the vintage and should cruise in the cellar for two decades.

Black fruit, meat juice. It begins to show itself, after an hour. It needs time.

Lush mouthfeel. Lingering and building berry flavors splashed across a touch acidic and tannic backdrop. Tasty but needs a bit more time. Classic Pegau nose.

Smokey and meaty, and already throwing down a lot of sediment. Delicious now, but can age for longer.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
