Napa Cellars Zinfandel Napa Valley 2001
"This inky/ruby colured cuvee offers a classic Beaucastel bouquet of new saddle leather, cigar smoke, roasted herbs, black truffles, underbrush, and blackberry as well as cheery fruit. It is a superb, earthy expression of this Mouvedre-dominated cuvee. Full-bodied and powerful, it will undoubtedly close down over the next several years... Anticipated maturity: 2008-2025..." 96/100 pts. (Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - Feb 2004)

A very good Côtes du Rhône, who would compete with many small Chateauneuf. Mourvedre brings some animal and pepper twist, this is still a full bodied wine, it is very good now but can be kept one or two years without to be worried.
Meaty aromas, well balanced with notes of herbs and pepper
I drank a bottle of this Rhone Valley treat with a good friend of mine recently and was very impressed. I found this on a massive wine list a social club I am a member of has currently. I believe the club price was $38/bottle, but well worth it in my opinion. This had a dark red color with similar dark fruit and a touch of pepper from what I recall. This blend matched perfected with the seared scallops and Canadian bacon we were snacking on at the time.

Red wine 2001 Chateau de Beaucastel Chateauneuf-du-Pape France Region: Rh Free Shipping Insurance
Beaucastel has been on a terrific qualitative roll over the last four vintages, and the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape (which Francois Perrin feels is similar to the 1990, although I don t see that as of yet) is a 15,000-case blend of 30% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, 10% Counoise, and the balance split among the other permitted varietals of the appellation. This inky/ruby/purple-colored cuvee offers a classic Beaucastel bouquet of new saddle leather, cigar smoke, roasted herbs, black truffles, underbrush, and blackberry as well as cherry fruit. It is a superb, earthy expression of this Mourvedre-dominated cuvee. Full-bodied and powerful, it will undoubtedly close down over the next several years, not to re-emerge for 7-8 years. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2025.
Vivid and racy, with rich blackberry and currant fruit, lots of tar, smoke and mineral notes and a rich, sweet, chocolaty finish. Nice flashes of [i]terroir[n] lurk underneath all the fruit, too.
