Very nice red Rhone blend from Paso's Tablas Creek. Still bright and lively, with crushed plum, black cherry, a touch of earthiness and a hint of spice on the back end. Very good acidity and a medium to long finish.

Milk chocolate and flower aromas. Meaty, chocolate, and black cherry flavors. Lots of roasted her, grilled meat, and plum emerge as the wine opens up in both the aromas and flavors. Acidity and emerging minerality add complexity to the fruit.

The 2005 Esprit de Beaucastel looks sensational. A blend of 44% Mourvedre, 26% Grenache, 25% Syrah, and the rest Counoise, this wine has a dense ruby/purple color, a beautiful nose of incense, melted ... Robert Parker.

The 2005 Esprit de Beaucastel is dark black-red in color, with a rich briary nose of black cherry, plum and rare steak, overlaid with sweet spices and mocha. The elegant, layered palate shows explosive fruit, with smoky and meaty flavors. Ripe tannins provide structure. The long finish reveals mineral and black cherry notes. The wine is showing remarkably well now, but should evolve elegantly in bottle for 10-15 years or longer.44% Mourvedre, 26% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 5% CounoiseFOOD PAIRINGS: Game, Dark Fowl (i.e., duck), Richly flavored stews, Lamb, Asian preparation of red meats (i.e., beef stir fry)

($35; 65% roussanne, 30% grenache blanc and 5% picpoul) Straw-gold color. Reticent but complex nose offers lemon, resin and minerals, along with a note of iodine. Rich and sweet but at the same time penetrating and cool, conveying a strong impression... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
