Chateau de Beaucastel Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2008, Rhone, France
PRESS: Wine Spectator - 93 points. "Ripe and very sleek, with a dense core of cassis, blackberry and anise framed by violet and spice. The long finish drips with juicy fruit and subtle toast, with a flash of iron boding well for cellaring. Shows great freshness and balance for the vintage. Drink now through 2024."
