Plum sauce, cola, black licorice, and tobacco on the nose
Full-bodied and thick on the palate
Finishes with moderately strong tannins and layers of currants, cocoa, and smoke
This is a good solid Chateauneuf. It's not a modern interpretation, but rather a traditional style with some real heft and nice layers.
I paid around $35 for this wine several years ago. Raise a glass!
