Chateau Cabrieres Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2001

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

Good terroir on display in this flagrant, medium-bodied Châteauneuf. Subtle wet stones, black truffle, smoke, soy and roasted fowl character. Sleek and intense on the slightly burning finish. Best from 2005 through 2010.

The plum/ruby colored 2000 Châteauneuf-du-Pape possesses an excellent, sweet, full-bodied personality offering plenty of jammy kirsch, plum and currant fruit. It is an ideal candidate for consumption over the next 7-8 years.

The dark plum-colored 1998 Châteauneuf-du-Pape exhibits the tell-tale seaweed, pepper, and black cherry-dominated bouquet along with spice box and peppery undertones. Medium to full-bodied and purely made, with a nicely layered texture, it should drink well for a decade.

The 2000 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is sweet on the attack (because of high glycerin/alcohol), with a voluptuous texture, and a fleshy, fat, open-knit, expansive style. Drink this crowd-pleaser during its first 8-9 years of life.

Vibrant kirsch and macerated black currant fruit stretches out over a racy, minerally spine. The long, perfumy finish is filled with black tea and pepper, lingering nicely. Drink now through 2017.

A sweeter style of Rhône, which will blossom and develop as you enjoy each sip of its lush fruit. This CDP has a plump, unreserved, sexy style. If the thought of pretentious French wines has ever intimidated you, this wine will treat you like a big, overstuffed chair. A party pleaser and a great red to savor unhurriedly.

Has a sun-dried cherry, raspberry nose with an ultra-lush, velvety mouthfeel. The flavors are well-balanced with notes of blackberry and a clean, bright, red berry finish. Delicious and full of lively fruit; a great wine for any occasion.
