Tasting Notes:

90 points "This has a solid core of black fig and plum fruit coated with a layer of mocha. The juicy finish stretches out nicely, with black fruit and sweet smoke notes lingering. Drink now through 2018. 900 cases made." Best 2009-2018

90 points "The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape offers up a big, sweet nose of roasted meats, Provencal herbs, kirsch, and black currants, followed by a full-bodied, ripe, dense, supple-textured wine displaying considerable complexity. Already drinking well, it can be enjoyed now and over the next decade. This new producer should not be confused with Clos Saint-Jean. I do not know much about this estate, but these two Chateauneuf du Papes appear to be sleepers of the vintage." Best 2009-2019
