Le Vieux Donjon Chateauneuf du Pape Syrah Grenache Mourvedre Cinsault Rhone Chateauneuf du Pape 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Brilliant rusty amber red. It has a big engulfing nose of crushed berries, Asian spices, sous bois, nutmeg, brown sugar with herbal/medicinal overtones. On the palate, the wine is long and smooth with strong leather and smoked meat characteristics.

Gorgeous. So silky, deep, luscious and seductive, like drinking the equivalent of Barry White's voice. I like this more than other much more expensive wines in this category. The varietals all lend their own characteristics, but the flavors are very harmonious. Dark fruits are the most forward, but well balanced with acidity, earth and spice. It's definitely ready to drink now. Will probably be great for a few years, but don't let it go over the hill!

Deep ruby. Seductively aromatic bouquet of red and dark berries, fresh flowers and minerals, with subtle garrigue and baking spice character. A round, creamy midweight with deep, sweet raspberry and blackcurrant flavors and a finish featuring gently ... Stephen Tanzer. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2005 Vieux Donjon Chateauneuf du Pape 750ml
