Tasted last weekend over several hours. Hot, tannic and awkward. Very forward super-ripe Grenache in the front but little else except for alcohol (16%!) and drying tannins. I don't know if time will help this come around, but we were all disappointed. The '98 Beaucasatel and '98 Cailloux Cuvee Centennaire were much more pleasurable then the Capo.

No Cuvee da Capo was made in 2009, but the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee da Capo is composed of 80–85% Grenache and the rest a field blend of the other permitted varietals (Syrah, Mourvedre, Muscardin, Terret Noir, Counoise, Vaccarese, etc.). It is fashionable to compare the newest Capo with a previous vintage, and for me, the 2010 resembles 2007 more than their 2003, 2000 or 1998. The stunningly rich 2010 has close to 16% natural alcohol, and will be bottled after spending 18 months in old wood foudres. Notions of ripe figs, kirsch liqueur, cedar, Christmas fruitcake, smoked meats, charcuterie and beef blood are present in this staggeringly complex, rich, full-throttle, massive, intense wine. Drink it over the next 20–30 years.

Showing off the chart levels of concentration and richness, with jaw-dropping aromatics of roasted meats, spice, licorice, liquid mineral, and incredibly pure blackberry and assorted dark fruits, it hits the palate with a gorgeously pure, full-bodied, and powerful texture that just keeps on giving. Nothing is out of place, the fruit is perfectly ripe, and it has thrilling purity and depth. The amount of tannin here would give me pause if it was not for all of the depth and richness through the middle. This legend in the making will need a full decade or more of cellaring, yet will age and drink well for 2 decades or more after that. If you can afford it, do not miss it....98-100" RR 10/12
