Clos des Papes - Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2008
Decanted 4 hours. In the glass a ruby brown color; translucent; brown core with light rim. In the nose lovely, smooth aromas of plums, smoke, meat and spiced stew. The palate shows great balance and elegance, light on its feet even. Fresh acid and fine tannins, along with red plums, strawberries and rhubarb. It finishes with herbs and fresh acid.
