Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige Roger Sabon 2003
"Dense raspberry, plum, licorice, tar and bacon notes are supported by thick, muscular tannins in this concentrated, showy red. A bit of a brute now (though floral and mineral hints chime in too) so cellar. If you do, you’ll have a classic example of the vintage. Best from 2007 through 2025...95." WS 7/05
