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.

High-toned up front, with floral and cherry licorice notes backed by a dash of sandalwood on the slightly dusty finish. Drink now.
