Tasting Notes:

95 points "A powerhouse for the vintage, with loads of blackberry and black currant fruit held at bay by tar, loamy tannins and thick layers of cocoa and coffee. Marvelously balanced despite its weight, with fruit and terroir coursing through the finish. Best from 2008 through 2030. 1,100 cases made. –JM" Best -2030

91 points "Deep ruby. Explosively ripe, pungent aromas of blackcurrant, boysenberry, candied licorice, vanilla and exotic spices. Lush, supple and very sweet, with deeply concentrated, almost liqueur-like dark fruit flavors, supple tannins and a good dose of oak spice. Undeniably suave and appealing (lovers of new oak may rate this higher than I do) but I wonder what it would have been like with a bit less coconutty oak."

94 points "The 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de la Reine des Bois is also a beauty – full-bodied, not as tannic as most young vintages of this cuvee tend to be, with an inky ruby/purple color and a beautiful sweet nose of smoked meats, creme de cassis, raspberries, licorice, graphite, and camphor. Full-bodied, ripe, with moderately sweet tannin, this is a wine that uncharacteristically can be drunk at a relatively early age for Mordoree but should last for 10-15 years." Best -2017
