Very young, with tightly drawn tannins still covering the black cherry, raspberry and sweet cigar smoke notes. Plenty of guts, with beef bouillon, mesquite, game, hot stones, graphite and spice notes coursing through the finish. Should be very long-lived.--1995 Châteauneuf-du-Pape retrospective. Drink now through 2025. 500 cases made.
