Excellent CNP from a strong vintage. Smooth, rich, soft and distinctly sweet (the way the Romans liked them--and why they planted the Rhone). Read more

Young and hot. Very spicy zin, notes of chocolate. Fairly average - overpriced for almost $30. Very spicy hot finish.
This white wine is composed of 80% Roussanne and 20% Grenache. After picking the grapes and the fermentation of the juice, 30% aged in new oak barrels. The remaining 70% is aged in large wooden Foudres. 2004 seems to be a white wine to the old side, but a wine of this level can easily several years to mature in the bottle and are even benefit from. In the glass, the deep dark golden color is the first thing you notice about this hit from the southern Rhone region. The smell of the wine is characterized by mature tones, intensity and is very typical of a white wine from the illustrious Chateauneuf-du-Pape. We find in the fine fragrance notes of almond paste, apricot, honey and a little tray of orange mare. If the bottle open for some time are showing flowers and a small key from the glass timber up. There is also a slight oxidative tone observed. This is not at all disturbing and just adds a nice element to the wine. In the mouth the wine has a wonderful balance between crisp acidity and a high concentration of flavor. The aftertaste is long and intense. A beautiful specimen of a white Chateauneuf high flavor intensity, beautiful fresh tones and brilliant complexity. Definitely a beauty of a wine from this area. The wine is lovely to drink now, but has half hour to open. Our advice is to consume this wine in 2016, then it will be best. 93/100 Supersnobs.com

magical - did not know a zinfandel could be this good
the purple color is what drew me to this wine. after letting the bottle breathe, jammy and simple. easy to drink... easier to get drunk.
Always try to put this wine away and enjoy it years down the road. But I always pull it out for any special occasion. Hardest bottle to keep!!!
Lovely floral nose followed by luscious honeysuckle, lavender and subtle tropical notes. Great balance & finish; truly a model of finesse & elegance in an offbeat white.
External Reviews for Château de Beaucastel Cdp Jacques Perrin
Crisp and vivid, with juicy blackberry and currant fruit at the center, aromatic with earth and herbs that carry over into the fine grained, minerally finish. An Aussie Merlot with real character. Drink now through 2008.
The 2002 Merlot, which was aged in used French and American oak (40% of the former and 60% of the latter), exhibits a dark plum/ruby color, a big, fleshy texture, and a sweet nose of roasted coffee, mocha, thyme, and cola-infused black cherry/plum-like fruit. It is a plush, corpulent Merlot to drink over the next 3-4 years.
Rich in texture and flavor, with minty, creamy, vanilla and spice notes weaving through the basic black cherry fruit, echoing nicely on the fuzzy-grained finish. Drink now through 2004.
Good full red. Less obviously ripe aromas of black cherry, dark berries, cocoa powder and smoke, plus a faint medicinal nuance. More open in the mouth today that the last; shows lovely sweetness and texture and very good cut and thrust. Hints of leather and game. Not quite as ripe as the rsquo;97, but finishes quite persistent, with a subtly perfumed quality. This may well be for drinking after the rsquo;97.
Merlot is a tough varietal to harness in Australia, and much of it is vegetal and unattractive. However, Marquis Philips' 2004 Merlot is a tasty, dark ruby-hued example with sweet white chocolate characteristics intermixed with notions of road tar, black cherries, and currants. Supple-textured, medium-bodied, and luscious, it can be enjoyed over the next 2-3 years.
There is an ocean of insipid Merlot in the marketplace, but Marquis Philip's $15 Merlot is as good as most $50-60 California Merlots. The 2005 (100% Merlot aged in new and one year old American and French oak for 12 months) displays a deep ruby/purple color along with plenty of mocha, cocoa, and sweet cherries, a lush texture, and real opulence as well as flesh. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
These red wine are unreal in terms of their quality, flavor intensity, and overall complexity as well as their potential... I am not a fan of New World Merlot, but Marquis Philips' 2001 Merlot (a 100% Merlot from both Padthaway and McLaren Vale that was aged one year in old oak) is outstanding. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by sweet aromas of vanilla, black cherries, mocha, smoke, and a hint of chocolate. Dense, textured, medium to full-bodied, with low acidity and luscious fruit, this is a sweetheart of a Merlot.
