    (Jaboulet Hermitage La Chapelle) A couple of Rhones closed out the red wine portion of our program, beginning with a 1989 Jaboulet Hermitage La Chapelle. Peter found it ‘plastic-y,’ but then said he finds Rhones that way in general. The nose was fabulous, full of sweet, black fruits, garrigue, spice, pepper, game, chocolate, minerals and bread aromas. The palate was rich and hearty, more limited and square than its nose, although there was nice citrus and leather smack to its gamy finish (94+).
