Interesting - incredible nose - very earthy - barnyard like in a good way , initial smell of heavy fruits like plums and deep black cherry - dry, smooth, lingering finish - for certain needs time to decant - it has been over an hour and it is getting better - very smooth - will come back and update when some time has gone by - we have another bottle and I will decant it for some time before drinking - this is meant to drink on the colder side - getting much better in hour 2 - decant and wait at least 2 hours - refrigerate and leave out till you like the temp - it is now about 4 hours decanted and chilled - this is read more...a no miss wine - it was a gift and I could not be happier - just have to find it now

Full body, great complexity and structure of flavors. Very intense flavor because the strong sweetness is tamed by even stronger tannins. Dark fruit nose and bouquet; Cherry, dark berries, plum taste; mint finish. Personal favorite of sub $20 cab.

Rating 85 .Somehow disappointing. Strong vegetal nose and taste. Tannins slightly bitter. Full body long finish. Smell is to annoying for me to warrant a better rating.

I found this Cab a bit restrained, with no hard edges. Very soft tannins, a pleasant nose, and controlled fruit with some nice herbal notes. Very easy drinking.

I had this with dinner a few weeks ago. Overall this is an OK wine. There were good citrus flavors as well as some tropical fruit, but for me it was a bit too grassy. I know the southern hemisphere produces a lot of grassy SB, but I have had some from this region (Casablanca Valley) that were not quite so overpowering.

A very grippy style, with lots of sweet tapenade, tobacco, hot stone and braised chestnut notes weaving through a core of dark currant and fig fruit. There’s a nice twinge of lavender on the structured finish. For the cellar. Best from 2010 through 2028.

When Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape became Francersquo;s first AOC, in 1936, Vieux Teacute;leacute;graphe had already been in operation for nearly 40 years. Today, brothers Daniel and Freacute;deacute;ric Brunier farm the domainrsquo;s 173 acres located in the appellationrsquo;s famed La Crau sector. The wine is a blend of 65 percent Grenache with 15 percent each of Syrah and Mourveacute;dre and a dash of Cinsault, Clairette and others, all sourced from vines averaging 60 years of age.

The 2006 Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf du Pape, which is aged only in foudre and bottled with minimal clarification, is a more masculine, muscular effort than most 2006s. Its dark ruby/purple color is followed by notions of the sushi seaweed wrapper, nori, interwoven with incense, lavender, pepper, and copious quantities of black cherry and raspberry fruit. Medium to full-bodied, with moderate tannin, and good structure as well as depth, it will benefit from 3andndash;4 years of bottle age, and should keep for 15 or more years.

Deep red. Raspberry, kirsch and cured meat aromas are complicated by garrigue and hot stones. Nicely focused red fruit flavors possess impressive sweetness and very good depth, finishing with excellent sweetness and length. Note that “La Crau” is always stated on the label and that this is the only cuvee labeled as Vieux Telegraphe.

The 1996 Châteauneuf du Pape is evolved, forward, richly fruity with medium body, and plenty of smoke, pepper, allspice, black cherry and Provençal herb aromas. Seductive, round, charming and sexy. The 1996 possesses slightly more depth, is fuller-bodied, and with riper fruit concentration, but they are very close in quality. Will offer delicious drinking for 6-7 years.

Winemaker's Notes:

In this vintage to be remembered, about two-thirds of the grapes were sourced from the cool Central Coast region of California, where early spring rains led to a bit of Noble Rot in just enough grape bunches to add a touch of complexity and richness to the wine. Tangerine, mango and clean aromas of orange spice join with pineapple, baked pears and hints of tell-tale cinnamon, common to Gewürztraminer. This wine can be zesty, and flavors of clove, orange and caramelized apples come to the fore.

Tasting Notes:

Yellow . Luscious tropical fruit and juicy grapefruit rounded out with soft vanilla and hazelnut notes. Wonderful fruit flavours, pleasant acidity and sweetness. Elegant and beautifully balanced.

<p>Panamera Cuv&eacute;e California is a full-bodied wine that is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Zinfandel with Boysen and raspberry flavors.&nbsp;</p>
