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.

Toasty, rich nose of spicy oak, black cherries and plum. Quite deep and concentrated. Chocolate, cedar, and spice in the background. The ripe, velvety flavors of black cherries and currants are accentuated by rich, creamy oak.

Elegant and seductive, showing complex and focused plum, currant, spice, cinnamon and cedar flavors. Finishes with soft, integrated tannins. Drink now through 2004.

Ripe black cherry and plum aromas mingle with toasty oak and a hint of leather. In the mouth, ripe black cherry, plum and currant flavors are beautifully in balance with sweet oak carrying through to a long finish.

Appearance: Ruby red Aroma: Aromas of rich chocolate, coffee, and cassis with notes of mixed dark fruit and raspberry. Flavors: Extraordinarily rich and mouth-filling, with flavors of cassis, coffee and toasted oak that grace a well-structured body, full of texture with ripe, supple tannins on the lingering finish.

A big, sturdy, dry Cabernet, rich in chewy tannins, and filled with blackberries, cherries, currants and oak. Tasty, but lacking in acidity and stuffing for the long haul, so drink soon. - S.H. ** Only 3 in Stock **

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.
