    A dark, chewy style, with serious layers of fig, briar, espresso and loam. But this isn't top-heavy, with a beam of blackberry fruit running through the finish and enough well-embedded acidity for length and balance. Impressive. Best from 2008 through 2027.

    The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Quet exhibits a dense ruby/purple color to the rim and broad, impressive aromatics of spring flowers, melted licorice, camphor, and blue and black fruits. In the mouth it is layered, powerful, full-bodied, with high tannin, beautiful purity, and a finish that exceeds 45 seconds. This is a knock-out wine. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2025.
