Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe Châteauneuf-du-Pape la Crau Côtes du Rhône 2009
- Show All (87)
Dark red-more-than-purple in the glass. Oaky and smokey nose. Very pleasant on the tip of the tongue. Slight fruty sweetness--plums. As the wine travels through the palate tannis pop up along with some tartness. Very nice lingering finish. I would suggest is that this is not a wine for long aging, although it is an emminantly drinkable wine right now. US$18.99 at Costco.
Nose of ripe cassis withhints of candied cherry and currant. Some very slight eucalyptus and sweet oak vanilla. On the palate, it's rich and dry. Ripe cassis, currant, black plum and black cherry with some light cocoa and oak spice. Good acid balance to this so it should age and progress nicely with a few more years' aging. I think Franciscan always delivers a solid moderately priced, good value Napa cab. 86 pts.
Sweet on the nose, taste sugary, prune and dried fruits, warm. "Narcotic" [From "Chateauneuf du Pape & Friends" at Bin 105, Lincoln NE, 15 September 2013.]

Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 90 saying" Notes of cassis, cola, cedar, tobacco, lemon and a twinge of eucalyptus comprise the bouquet on this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Carmenere and Merlot. It tastes of cassis, blackberry, herb and chocolate; the finish is solid and minty, with a suggestion of cigar tobacco. This rocks hard, but with focus."

From one of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape greats, this white blend will entice with aromas of honeysuckle, freshly cut grass, and almonds. On the palate, the lasting acidity wraps around flavors of baked pears and grapefruit pith.
A juicy, gutsy style, with a core of crushed plum, braised fig and warm red and black cherry confiture notes backed by flashes of apple wood and tobacco on the open, lively finish. - According to the Wine Spectator
