Funky nose, decidedly leathery with plum, damp cigar, blackberry and cocoa. Youthful, rich and deep with a very aromatic inner mouth profile showing off green peppercorn and a lightly vegetal accent to the red cherry and slightly exotic pomegranate fruit. Finish is long, showing remaining tannins and a bright, acid-driven strawberry snap on the finale. 91pts

Winemaker's Notes:

97 points Wine Spectator: Displays gorgeous, savage aromas and flavors, with crushed juniper berry, hot tar, sage leaf, roasted chestnut and grilled beef notes that scorch across the palate. Still rugged on the finish, though the color at the rim and the intensity and range of the aromas show that this is evolving.--1998 Châteauneuf-du-Pape retrospective. Best from 2009 through 2027. (9/30/07)
