Wine experts say this White wine shows superior pedigree. It`s bone dry, brisk in acidity and dry, yet rich in honey, rounded apricot and tangerine flavors. The acidity is bracing, yet honeyed, in the final mix. It may be Chardonnay in a weird way, but it`s an extraordinary marriage of great acidity and great complexity. It was wise to defer release of this wine for nearly two years, but the good things have started to unfold now. It has fine, luscious fruit flavors, bright acids and a lingering finish. There is some good weight and concentration. Still, there is some green edge that suggests some aging. Try in 2008, but please don`t drink before 2009. An oaky, fruity Bordeaux-style blend with 7% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Merlot.
Wine experts say this White wine delivers as promised, with aromas of apricot, pineapple, vanilla and butterscotch. It`s dry, but there`s enough acidity to keep the pulse up. Structured yet linear in style, it offers custard, pear and peach flavors, with a proper, peppery bite to the finish. No, that too-stylish Syrah. Doesn`t offer much more, and in this context it`s because it`s a little on the thin side. It starts with aromas of chocolate-covered cherry, raspberry and vanilla, then follows with flavors that run toward tobacco and baked plum. Soft and candied, but the texture is where this wine is at, best for near-term drinking. This is a slightly sweet and very accessible Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Its apricot and pineapple aromas offer easy peach and melon flavors, with a slight spritz and a fringe of sugar. Drink now.
