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.

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.

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

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.

Soft and tannic, this Cabernet-based blend has cherry, blackberry and cola flavors, with an edge of dried herbs. Despite the tannins, it doesn't have the balance for aging, so drink now.

Based on Cabernet Sauvignon, this Bordeaux blend is rich in blackberry, cherry, currant, chocolate and cedar flavors. It's dry, and the softness of the mouthfeel makes it instantly appealing.

Dense, muscular wine with deep layers of dark blackberry, plum, cherry and a beautiful red garnet color. Concentrated and mouthcoating blend; primarily Cabernet and Merlot with a dash of Malbec and Petit Verdot. Awesome red for the cellar mdash; I have had tremendous results aging this wine, but usually I am too impatient to wait!

Plenty of cream, mocha and vanilla-scented oak up front in this smooth wine, with mocha, currant and spicy coffee scents. Impressive for its elegance and silky mouthfeel. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2008.

Firm, intense and vibrant, with spicy currant, mocha, red cherry flavors, turning elegant with well-integrated tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2007.

Rich, ripe and ready to enjoy, this complex blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (85%) and Cabernet Franc (15%) is a delicious mouthful of wine. Flavors of plum, currant and ripe cherry are joined by chocolate, vanilla and a nice touch of oak. Smooth enough to sip on its own - but save some for the steak.

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
