Nose is all about the barn yard. There's a little dookie in the mix. The texture is lush but a bit like rare meat. There is almost a blood component to it. There is a presence of rasberry on the fruit side. This is not a wine that fruit bombers are going to dig. I like the style. If there is one complaint it is that the wine is a little dis-jointed and all over the place. I think it might settle down in the bottle over the next couple...

Aromas of honeysuckle and ripe black fruit with flavors of chewy black fruit; rich, high-toned, and concentrated. Ziti with porcini.

There are some wines that silence the panel with their greatness, wines that knock us in our seats to stare, slack-jawed. This is one of them. Itrsquo;s not just that itrsquo;s huge, mouthfilling in flavor and tough as nails; itrsquo;s more that itrsquo;s incredibly succulent, as if built out of some sort of stone that gives up juice. for all its intensity and ferrous minerality, it remains fresh, the red fruit and spice seeming to go on forever.

Smells leathery and a bit overripe, with scents of dried fruit outweighing freshness. The leather and dried-cherry flavors linger enticingly on the finish, but show a trace of alcoholic warmth as well. A solid wine, but a disappointing effort from the Rhocirc;nersquo;s most famous and reliable neacute;gociant.

Old-fashioned, this full-bodied, traditional wine seduces with its decadent game, saddle-leather, plum and sauteed wild mushroom aromas. No hint of fancy oak, just a mouthful of Chacirc;teauneuf character that swirls around to a long, sweet finish. Another great neacute;goce red from Guigal. Drink now through 2008.

The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape is a must buy. It boasts a deep plum/ruby color as well as a rich bouquet of blackberries, kirsch, spice box, pepper, grilled herbs, and meat juices. With supple tannins, full body, and beautiful texture and depth, it should drink nicely for 10ndash;15 years.

Deep red. Very ripe nose offers intense red berry aromas and distinctly meaty, musky garrigue accents. Very rich and deep, with powerful, jammy raspberry and cherry flavors, dusty tannins and a long, chocolatey finish. Picks up some exotic spice notes on the back, which add vivacity to this chewy, somewhat brooding animal.

Guigal is best know for its legendary Cote-Rotie and Hermitage, but the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape fully deserves a place alongside its more renowned siblings, with elegant refinement and subtle, soil-driven intensity. Its dark, pungent flavors of black cherry and spiced plum are richly prominent, constantly referring back to a deeply gripping minerality that tethers the complex aromas of fruit, spice, fresh meat and black tea. It feels like a sphere, seemless and harmonious, staining the palate with its long, fragrant length.

Winemaker's Notes:

"80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, and 5% Mourvèdre and others from 45 year-old vines. A deep dark red in the glass with aromas of spices and mature red fruits. In the mouth, round tannins with powerful complexity. A rich unctuous wine with notes of mature plums, hazelnuts and red fruits. A very rich wine full of harmony and balance. Serve with: Red meat, game bird and cheese. "
