"Domaine Albin Jacumin Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Begude Des Papes) Barrel sample - dark ruby color; focused, beet juice, roasted beet nose; tart cherry, garrigue palate; ready now and should go 7-plus years; medium-plus finish"

Product Description:

"Displaying a deep garnet red with a superb shine and shades that start evolving. The nose demonstrates that vintage wine’s great maturity, in a very open style, on aromas of dried flower, crushed strawberry, blueberry, cherry jam, plum brandy and soft spices. The mouth is very generous, with an intense sensational sweetness and roundedness. The attack on the palate is very surprising with the plum brandy flavor. The many tannins easily find their place in this perfectly balanced wine. The finish uncovers roasted and vanilla notes alongside red fruit and marmelade." - Winery
