Domaine La Roquete Chateauneuf du Pape 2003 Wine Review (NW)

Rich nose of cherry, strawberry jam, licorice, and spices

Full bodied, thick, and velvety on the palate

Finishes with waves of cola, cherry, plum, and touches of cinnamon and herbs

Here's a great value Chateauneuf du Pape! I bought this bottle for $22 and can't wait to go find some more. Chateauneuf is a favorite of mine, and this one delivers the goods at a bargain price. Most Chateauneufs are more expensive and I often spend around $50 for a good bottle.

The outstanding thing about this wine is the thick, velvety texture that carries through to a really long finish. It has great layers on the finish, with a variety of flavors that meld together. Also see PB's review of this wine below.

I'm also looking out for the 2005 vintage from this producer as it has the potential to be even better at similar prices. Raise a glass!
