What a gorgeous nose full of spice, herb, jammy fruit, a little leather, a little damp tobacco, a touch of menthol and dried flowers. Pretty well resolved in the mouth with solid acidity and s touch of chewy tannins still here. There plenty of earthy, dried fruit, baked apple and dried cherry fruit with a bit of walnut/raisin/ apple strudel. This is long and pretty powerful on the backend with deep dark bitter cherry and black plum fruit tones. There's alot of earthy goodness here with an insinuation of green walnut carrying through on the finish. 2009-2014 90pts

Cured meats, dark sweet thick overripe cherries and a bit of wood on the nose. Palate is thick and creamy, smooth tannins, and a mouth full of heat and some leather. Those same cured meats are there, maybe some maple soaked bacon. Long, delicious finish.

    Alluring, brick and dark red color. Not an overly expressive nose, but nice plum and floral notes. Silky smooth on palate. Finish is a bit hot and acidic. Short too.

    Rich, heady nose of blackcurrants and ethanol. Soft, showing age with a tar like quality. Nice acidity with truffles on the finish. Very nice.

    This wine is cruising its way into maturity, displaying a savory nose of grilled rosemary, cedar, hearty plum, salted pork and pepper. The palate shows good concentration, w/ a chewy overlay sweet raspberry fruit pushing the mineral core through the fresh, juicy finish, 93 points.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    "...the 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape La Cuvee du Papet (only made in 1998, 1990, and 1989), exhibits the essence of cherry fruit in its strikingly intense fragrance. Full-bodied and expansive, with plenty of power, structure, and muscle, it offers the whole spectrum of Provencal herbs in its provocative, rich, concentrated, heady personality. Look for it to gain stature after bottling and drink well for two decades...91-93."WA12/01
