Domaine de la Vieille Julienne, Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2009, Rhone, France
Tasting Note: Deep-intensity ruby in color, this wine has a pronounced and aromatic nose of red cherry, violet, blackberry, raspberry and black plum.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied red blend has an oily texture with flavors suggested on the nose along with some leather.
The wine is medium-plus in grippy tannin with medium-plus flavor intensity.
The wine is good in quality and can be enjoyed now but has aging potential.
