"Vivid red. Fresh raspberry and cherry aromas are complicated by woodsmoke, garrigue and yellow rose. Strikingly pure and sweet, with deep red and dark berry preserve flavors, silky texture and no obvious tannins. Almost Burgundian in style, with a very long, powerfully fruity finish. Here's another 2007 that will be a stunner out of the gate."

"The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape is going to have plenty of admirers. Deep plum/ruby to the rim, medium to full-bodied, with a classic nose of garrigue, smoky meats, loads of kirsch and black currants, this broad, dense wine exhibits superb purity, enough acidity for focus and freshness, and a long, heady finish. This is one of the best traditional cuvees made in several years."

Redolent of pre-phylloxera cat piss. Subtle nose of on-your-heal dog feces. Bouquet of semen stained sheets. Otherwise, quite good.
