Vieux Telegraph Cndp 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"...it is a stunningly rich effort boasting an inky/blue/purple color as well as a gorgeous nose of forest floor, coffee, toast, and extravagant levels of black currants and blackberries. Hints of charcoal and flowers add to the wine’s exquisite character...96" WA 02/09 "I love the texture here. This is really impressive for 2006, which is a good but not great vintage. Blackberries, dark chocolate, and lightly roasted oak. Full-bodied, yet holding back with great finesse and strength....94" JS 05/12

One of my favorites. As Wine Advocate said - This has a beautiful core of berry, coffee and chocolate fruit. Full yet very balanced, with a velvety mouthfeel and a long, long finish. Extremely well made, with everything in proportion.

didn’t like it. thin, heavy tannins, kind of ‘naked’ oak without enough fruit or body to balance it. I love the Franciscan merlot, but this one was a no for me.

Had at Vieux Telegraphe tasting with Daniel Brunier. I hadn't taken notes, but I recall the Telegraphe being significantly more interesting and pleasing than the Telegramme and therefore a better value for the price. My opinion is that when going Chateauneuf du Pape, go big.

Full bodied with dark fruits and a hint of leather. Smooth mouth feel and a great wine for the price!

complex wine, with flavors of oak, leather, and plum. pairs well with dishes that can stand up to its fuller body, like the pork tenderloin we ate it with this past weekend.

enjoyed the wine. the level of merlot softens the wine, but the tannins don't quite stand up. other paso robles blends are better. try justin.

Well-charred oak dominates now, with its toasty vanillins, but underneath lurks a very pretty wine. The blackcurrant and cherry flavors are sweetly delicious, and the tannins are soft and lush. This appealing wine is easy to fall in love with. Give it a few years to knit together.

Full dense ruby color; a wide array of aromas including black cherry, plum, vanilla, cedar and pine. Full-bodied entry, generous layering of flavors; citrus balances jam, pepper modu- lates chocolate, earth rescues prunes. Tannins for long-term enjoyment, but a hedonistic pleasure now.

This Merlot-dominated blend is very soft and lush, with upfront chocolate fudge and black cherry flavors. It's an almost sweet wine, although it's basically dry and has good acids.

Estancia's Paso experiment with Cabernet-based wines has been problematic. How do you get balance and complexity with all that heat? This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot is good but rustic, with chocolate-coated raisins the dominant flavor.

Shows complex and subtle aromas of dried dark fruits and blueberry. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, refined finish. Very fine. Solid and balanced, with lovely sweet fruit on the finish. All in place for the vintage. Best from 2014 through... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Vieux Chateau Certan 750ml
