Chateau Cabrieres Chateauneuf du Pape 2010
A fine medium ruby in the glass this wine has a rich nose of earth, black tea, and bacon fat, wile on the palate it is dominated by herbal, black cherry, and raspberry flavors and tannins so velvety smooth that you almost don't want to swallow. The wine is nicely balanced and seems to shift its flavors, making it hard to pin down - at one moment redcurrant, at another rosehips. The finish is very nice.
External Reviews for Chateau Cabrieres Chateauneuf du Pape
The 2010s can be drunk now or cellared for a decade. Both cuvées possess more intensity and richness than their 2011 counterparts. The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape, a blend of 65% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 12% Mourvedre and the rest Cinsault from 45- to 90-year-old vines, reveals plenty of balsam wood, Provencal herbs, pepper and kirsch liqueur. It is an attractive, seductive, medium to full-bodied 2010 to enjoy over the next decade.
Saturated ruby. Fresh red and dark berries on the nose and palate, with a touch of licorice adding depth. At once juicy and smooth, finishing with good clarity and no rough edges. I suspect that this wine will be enjoyable on the young side.

A sweeter style of Rhocirc;ne, which will blossom and develop as you enjoy each sip of its lush fruit. This CDP has a plump, unreserved, sexy style. If the thought of pretentious French wines has ever intimidated you, this wine will treat you like a big, overstuffed chair. A party pleaser and a great red to savor unhurriedly.
Vibrant kirsch and macerated black currant fruit stretches out over a racy, minerally spine. The long, perfumy finish is filled with black tea and pepper, lingering nicely. Drink now through 2017.
This is an exceptional Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape at a bargain price! The blend is 50% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre and 10% Cinsault. Deep ruby in color with aromas of blackberries and cassis on the nose. Intense flavors of ripe dark berries combine with a rich, balanced hint of spice. Delicate yet bold, this wine has a long, mouthwatering finish that goes on and on. Excellent with steak with peppercorns or grilled lamb chops.
The 2000 Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape is sweet on the attack (because of high glycerin/alcohol), with a voluptuous texture, and a fleshy, fat, open-knit, expansive style. Drink this crowd-pleaser during its first 8ndash;9 years of life.
