July 14, 2014 - Leather and black cherry on the nose. Full bodied with waves of luscious ripe fruit. Definitely leaning towards a modern style, but just enough rusticness to keep this real. Still going strong for a 2003.

July 13, 2014 - A ripe nose of blackberry, fig, herbs and licorice lead way to much of the same on the palate along with a tobacco, vanilla and a roasted meat quality flavor profile. While good it left me wanting more.

April 12, 2014 - Merveilleux accompagnement aux fromages que ce Châteauneuf du Pape aux nombreux cépages. Tannins très bien fondus et une finale qui perdure fort agréablement.

April 11, 2014 - Bright garnet. Medium nose of boysenberries and blackberries, properly ripe palate of dark berries and some plum, but a little hollow. The finish is medium-long and pleasing. This wine has reasonable tannic grip for a CdP, no obvious alcohol despite the 14.5% ABV.

March 11, 2014 - Old-world with a bit of modernity. Leather and hay in the nose with lean, chocolate, leather and light berry flavors. Tannins are plenty sufficient as is a certain pepper heat on the finish. Mature, probably beginning to slide. Drink now.
