The blockbuster 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Sixtine (55% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 15% Mourvedre from 50- to 105-year-old vines) boasts an inky/purple color as well as a sensational perfume of camphor, graphite, black currants, black cherries, licorice, and smoke. Built like a young Bordeaux with its tannic structure, this full-bodied, intensely flavored wine reveals a meaty character in the mouth. As with most vintages since 1998, the 2007 requires cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2028+. Wine Advocate , #185, Oct 2009, Robert Parker "Lush and inviting, with crushed plum, currant and blackberry fruit flavors laid over velvety tannins. The long, graphite- and licorice-filled finish glides along beautifully, with solid grip in reserve. Best from 2010 through 2024. 1,500 cases made." - Wine Spectator, Oct. 15 2009, James Molesworth "Inky ruby. Vibrant red berry and floral scents. Tightly focused red fruit flavors are deepened by anise and brown spice qualities, picking up a tangy blood orange note with air. All red berry preserves on the smooth, strikingly long finish." ST

($38) Full red. Highly perfumed aromas of raspberry, cherry and fresh flowers. Supple and sweet, offering juicy red fruit flavors that verge on jammy, with velvety tannins adding support. Reminiscent of a rich New World pinot noir, with very good fin... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2007 Cuvee du Vatican Chateauneuf du Pape 750ml

A non-brainer purchase is 2007. The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape spent over a year in neutral wood foudres. A blend of 75% Grenache and 25% Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault, and other authorized varietals, it exhibits sweet black cherry, licorice, pepper, garr... Robert Parker.
