The limited production 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve des Deux Freres (400 cases) is 100% Grenache aged 40% in old barrels, 30% in tank, and 30% in new oak casks. A spicy, full-bodied, powerful effort, it is built for 20+ years of cellaring. The color is a saturated ruby/purple and the nose offers up scents of camphor, toast, blackberry and blueberry liqueur, incense, licorice, truffle and spice box. The wine’s concentration and superb intensity absorb the oak in a shockingly easy fashion. This classic, massive, rich Chateauneuf du Pape needs 2-4 years of bottle age and should drink well over the following two decades. ROBERT PARKER 

Vivid purple. Black raspberry, cherry-vanilla, floral oils and a note of exotic spices on the perfumed nose. Suave, vinous and very sweet, marked by a solid core of minerality that gives the wine's densely packed raspberry and mulberry flavors impressive energy and clarity. Firm tannins add grip to a very long, smoky finish. JOSH RAYNOLDS, Tanzer
