  • Still a stunning wine. Pepper, crushed rock, coal, charcoal, charcuterie, garrigue, lavender, roasted coffee beans, and dark chocolate on an incredibly appealing bouquet. Huge palate that tastes like it smells, with tremendous acid, grip, structure. Finishes long and appetizing. A versatile and profound offering. Subtle, elegant, and refined.

  • The tar and glycerin from my previous tastings are gone and this is now displaying nice balance and roundness. Might even be a 90, I'm just not feeling generous. Went great with a pork tenderloin.

  • Consistent with my prior notes and as expected, still drinking beautifully. It's so unusual for a Cotes du Rhone Villages to have this much structure and complexity. Full-bodied, rich and still loaded with delicious, ripe plum and boysenberry fruit. Wonderfully well-balanced and very long. Finishes with ultra-fine tannins and notes of ripe fruit and spice. Polished, complex and delicious. Still the best Cotes du Rhone I have ever tasted - including the Crus.

  • Never a disappointment with Cuvee Sabrine. I've drunk nine vintages in the last eleven years and it has proven to be one of the best values around for complex, age-worthy, dead-on-rustic-styled "Chateauneuf du Rhone". An 04 I drank a year ago was showing brilliantly. Pipe smoke and sage overlay a complexity of dark red fruit on the nose. A little angularity to the tannins, but plenty of incense-tinged, medium-weight lusciousness makes for fine early drinking. Fates willing, I shall drink one a year for the next five years, and watch this lovely 2010 fully bloom.

  • Classic AB cdr. More rustic in style with raspberries, hot stones, fruit leather, black tea and coffee grounds. It's still tight at this point with some good tannins but softens up with a decant.
