Fleshy, lightly sweet red fruit, herb tones, little red licorice. Rather soft on the palate with fully resolved tannins and nice acid. A bit light with a nice mineral aspect on the back end, then it frays just a touch finishing with decent length and some chocolate notes. Quite aromatic, fleshy, round and very giving with a nice green spice thing on the finale. 87pts

Big nose of blackberry and dark cherry. A rather new world style, with notes of blackberry/cherry/licorice, good gripping tannins, and a bit of black pepper on the finish. A blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre.

Bright red berries on the nose. Complex but ready to drink.

Too cough syrup-y and new world for my tastes. Very fruit-forward and overly ripe with red fruits and a bit of spice, but unbalanced and too heavy on the alcohol. Nose virtually non-existent. 2007 was kind of a crappy vintage, but even with that in mind, there are much better CDRs out there.

Liked this for $13. Guess I'm the new world, new wine type. Looking forward to my next bout with the flu

As per previous note, this wine really needs time to breathe. I highly recommend decanting, actually. Heavy alcohol and tannins, overshadowing the blackberry fruit and terrior. Good - 83 points.

This offers lots of aromatic spice, mulled raspberry and melted licorice notes, laced with black tea and sweet spice hints. Features lingering dark fruit on the finish. Drink now through 2012.

For example, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape.

The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape (70% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Counoise aged in old small barrels) exhibits delicious notes of sweet cherries, mulberries, tobacco leaf, licorice and spice box. Lush, round and medium to full-bodied, it is ideal for... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2009 Paul Autard Chateauneuf du Pape 750ml

Full ruby. Pungent, oak-spiced aromas of dark berry liqueur, cola, licorice and incense. Fleshy and ripe on entry, then brighter and more animated in the mid-palate, showing impressive depth and energy to its cassis and blueberry flavors. This seductive, fleshy, distinctly modern wine finishes very long and smooth, with lingering vanilla and spice notes.
