90 Points | International Wine Cellar , March/April 2011

Deep ruby. High-pitched aromas of raspberry, cracked pepper and violet. Then rich, creamy and penetrating, with compelling sweetness to the flavors of black raspberry, cherry compote and candied flowers. Leans more toward 2007 in style than most '08s, characterized by lush, seamless texture and a long, gently tannic finish. (Sussex Wine Merchants, Moorestown, NJ)

Smooth...you bet

This is a wonderfully smooth drinking wine. We opened a bottle and the consensus was "delicious." Mid-body, full flavor, smooth finish. Velvet in a bottle.
Disappointing after the buildup in reviews

I looked forward to this enough to order a case since I generally love the Papes. But this one is light, a little watery, not really up to a Trader Joe's bottle which is had for less money and hassle. One of my few disappointments from WA.

About Chateauneuf du Pape

The Rhone's Chateauneuf du Pape has been one of the hottest categories of the new millennium in the American market, thanks in equal part to the nearly candied ripeness and full-bodied, chewy texture of these wines and to an unprecedented string of four consecutive very good to outstanding vintages between 1998 and 2001.
