    (Pierre Usseglio Mon Aieul Chateauneuf du Pape) #2; COLOR-dark; NOSE-this smells like sauerkraut and hint of pickles as well that I like it a lot; finishes off with gorgeous red fruit (cranberry, strawberry & cherry); PALATE-Wow…this is a BIG BOY; big powerful palate; ridiculous amounts of cranberry, strawberry and cherry (like an imaginary Ocean Spray drink); little chalkiness; gorgeous leather and chocolate components on back-end; really pretty and complex; a little black pepper/spice on the third quarter transition; big, bold wine that is also very young as this can cellar 25-30 years' but this is pretty damn delicious; the complexity is over-the-top; one of the more complex CdP's I've had in a long time; this '06 is quite approachable and a little more classic; extremely well made; this is a very serious and complex wine; the mouthfeel is extraordinary as this is just SO silky; RP-96; GV-94
