La Font du Vent Côtes du Rhône les Promesses 2007
[93 pts Stephen Tanzer] Deep red. Highly expressive aromas of red berries smoky herbs Asian spices and minerals. Smooth and silky with sweet raspberry and kirsch flavors and no obvious tannins. A seductive juicy wine that finishes with excellent breadth and precision. I suspect this will be alluring on release. --------- [Robert Parker] A sleeper selection is the sexy 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape. It offers plenty of spice box fruitcake and black cherry jam notes along with a creamy texture and opulent lush silky tannins. The vintage?ÇÖs lack of excessive heat spikes has provided freshness as well as terrific aromatics. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.

An elegant wine, with sweet cherry fruit and high floral notes that set the stage for a lush, silky palate infused with notes of raspberry sorbet and fall leaves. Lingering finish of vanilla and baking spices. Imported by Robert Kacher Imports.
