Chateau Cabrieres Chateauneuf du Pape 2009

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

The 2000 Chacirc;teauneuf-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 8ndash;9 years of life.

The soft, easygoing 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape reveals cherry and plum-like fruit in its round, generously fruity, straightforward personality. Medium-bodied, with no hard edges, it is an ideal offering for neophytes or restaurants looking for a tasty house wine. Enjoy it over the next 5ndash;6 years.

This is an exceptional Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape at a bargain price! The blend is 50% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre and 10% Cinsault. Deep ruby in color with aromas of blackberries and cassis on the nose. Intense flavors of ripe dark berries combine with a rich, balanced hint of spice. Delicate yet bold, this wine has a long, mouthwatering finish that goes on and on. Excellent with steak with peppercorns or grilled lamb chops.

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.

Oxidized aromas of stewed fruit, raisin, fruitcake, spice, dark olive, black currant and cherry. Round and compact with good intensity of flavor and a firm tannic grip to the finish which adds to the length. Drink: 2015.

A sweeter style of Rhocirc;ne, 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.

The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape (which claims as a consultant the excellent oenologist Xavier Vignon) is a blend of 65% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 12% Mourvedre and the rest Cinsault, aged in a combination of foudres and small oak barrels. It is an impressive dark ruby/plum color, and is front-end loaded with black cherry and black currant fruit as well as hints of licorice, pepper, and spice box. A touch of toasty oak suggests some new wood barrels, but that is largely submerged beneath a cascade of rich, full-bodied, opulent fruit. With an enticing texture and some structure, this wine should be at its best in 2andndash;3 years and drink well for 12andndash;15.
