Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige Roger Sabon 2005
Spicy, vanillin oak notes accompany jammy raspberry and blackberry on the nose, with additional complexity provided by a hint of lavender pastille. Round and creamy in texture, with impressively sweet, concentrated red fruit flavors tightening up on the back end. The tannins are soft and fully buffered by fruit, and the finish displays excellent focus and a lingering suggestion of tangy red berries.
