Dunkles Rubinrot. Feiner Zimtduft, süsslich-nussige Aromatik, getrocknete Orange, Nougat und Schokonoten im feinherben Gaumen. Fruchtiges Aromaspiel im Finale.

The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape shows the up-front, precocious strawberry and sweet kirsch fruit intermixed with some floral notes. The wine is elegant, soft, savory, and will provide many thrills for hedonists over the next 7–8 years.

The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape is a sexy, delicious concoction of roasted herbs, ground pepper, sweet kirsch, and blacker fruits presented in a lush, accessible, seductive style. Drink it over the next decade.

A velvety texture carries ripe, spicy flavors of plum pudding, chocolate, cinnamon and raisin, yet remains firm and fresh, tender and long. A modern style. Drink now through 2013. 1,000 cases imported. -TM The 2006 Demora is 100% Tempranillo aged for 22 months in 50% new, mostly French oak. Purple-colored, it offers a nose of toasty oak, pencil lead, violets, mineral, and blackberry. Structured, sweetly fruited, but just a bit lean on the mid-palate, it may fill out with several more years of bottle age.

Medium ruby. Powerful red berry and musky herbs on the nose, with a bright mineral quality adding energy. Tangy redcurrant and strawberry flavors are finely etched and impressively fresh, with good mineral lift to the finish. I suspect that this will gain weight with a couple more years of aging.

Juicy, with a beam of red currant and cherry fruit backed by sweet spice, roasted vanilla and red licorice notes. There’s a nice juicy edge to the medium-weight finish. Drink now through 2015.

Deep red. Smoky raspberry and garrigue on the nose, with slow-building minerality and a tobacco nuance. Flavors of bitter cherry and candied flowers are gently lifted by soft acidity. Pretty and fairly easygoing, with good finishing sweetness and length.
