2005 Chapoutier Chateuneuf du Pape Croix du Bois

Just picked these up yesterday from Premier Cru. Riedel stems.

Nice translucent deep ruby purple color. Forward nose of sweet tar, marionberry jam, and cedar. Nice glycerin heft to the midpalate, buoying notes of red and deep blue fruits, creosote, and smoky herbs. The lengthy finish had a nice dry snap to it, perhaps brought on by the well concealed alcohol. A very nice wine with what I suspect is great aging potential. 93+ points. Smile
