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.

Has a sun-dried cherry, raspberry nose with an ultra-lush, velvety mouthfeel. The flavors are well-balanced with notes of blackberry and a clean, bright, red berry finish. Delicious and full of lively fruit; a great wine for any occasion.
The dark plum-colored 1998 Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape exhibits the tell-tale seaweed, pepper, and black cherry-dominated bouquet along with spice box and peppery undertones. Medium to full-bodied and purely made, with a nicely layered texture, it should drink well for a decade.
Good terroir on display in this flagrant, medium-bodied Chacirc;teauneuf. Subtle wet stones, black truffle, smoke, soy and roasted fowl character. Sleek and intense on the slightly burning finish. Best from 2005 through 2010.
Silky and perfumy up front, with warm cherry pie, linzer torte and red licorice flavors, this soon turns dark and more reticent, with grippy charcoal, blackberry and plum skin notes taking over on the finish. Shows plenty of stuffing. Just needs a little time to round into form. Best from 2013 through 2020.
