Wine Spectator 92 points - A sleeper selection, the 2008 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reserve (70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Cinsault from 65+ year old vines) reveals a ruby/plum color as well as notes of roasted meat juices intermixed with black cherries, black currants, licorice and garrigue. Medium to full-bodied and atypically rich and powerful with an upfront precociousness, it is ideal for drinking over the next 7-8 years. Bravo!

2008 SABON CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE RESERVE
"Inviting on the nose, with warm fig bread and hoisin sauce notes leading the way for lush cherry preserve, crushed plum and anise flavors. Silky and rounded on the finish, with a long, lingering black licorice note. Drink now through 2023." Wine Spectator 92 points
