Double decanted for three hours. The wine seemed very young when tasted along with other Chateauneuf du Papes from 1989 thru 2005. Good balance overall with big red fruit but a little heavy on the acid. I won’t taste again for another five years.

First bottle of this I've tried. Pop and pour at restaurant. Mostly red fruits but there seems to be a little too much acid. Later in the evening the wine was more in balance but seemed a little thinner than I expected. I did enjoy the wine. I have a few more bottles of this wine and I hope in time it will add some weight and be all it can be.

The cork was dark on top and fully saturated, but happily the nose is sweet with flavors of pears, apples, light caramel and honey. Rich golden color that is somewhat darker than my last tasting several years ago. Taste is smooth and creamy, without the acidity I remember. Still a true delight. It is time to drink up remaining bottles.

At a group double blind tasting. The bottle was from my cellar. Much more advanced than the last bottle I had some 18 months ago. Dark purple in color and mostly dark fruits and chocolate on the nose and palate. Medium bodied, great balance and a finish that went on and on. What a treat. Well received by the others in the group. I'm glad that I have a few more bottles to enjoy.

Drank at Thanksgiving dinner with family. Sweet red fruits and spices on the nose. A little thin on the palate. Good balance although a little hot at first. The bottle did not last very long so I did not have a chance to see if it improved. Will try another bottle and drink it over a longer period of time.
