  • So last winter, we drank a bottle of 2004 Dom de la Roquete Chateauneuf du Pape.  Delicious.  Bought it at deep discount, and wished I had bought more.  Last month, at a large dinner, someone (a beverage professional from one of SF's best restaurants) brought the 2007 of same wine, direct from Kermit Lynch, so the provenance was unquestionable. ...

  • "-- The 2007 ----- is 100% Tinto Fino aged for 24 months in French and American barriques. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it emits a super-fragrant bouquet of pain grille, pencil lead, Asian spices, black cherry, and blackberry. Dense and opulent on the palate, this loaded effort is succulent, pure, and exceptionally lengthy. It will evolv... Read More
