Dark red. Wild, gamey aromas of bitter cherry, licorice, raw steak, leather and roasted coffee. Chunky and rich on the palate, with the wild meaty qualities repeating and expanding with air. A distinctly uncivilized but intriguing wine that may settle down with time.

The 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Grande Garde reveals high levels of tannin and richness, and seems to have the most stuffing and potential for aging, but it is disjointed.


Winemaker's Notes:

"notes of new saddle leather, crushed pepper, and kirsch will get a blast from the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Grande Garde. The flamboyant aromatics are accompanied by a full-bodied effort boasting a sweet attack, mid-palate, and finish, and loads of herb, plum, and black cherry characteristics. Because of low acidity and ripe tannin, this classic Chateauneuf can be drunk upon release, and over the following 10-12 years. "
