Chateauneuf-du-Pape Tradition 2005 Red Wine Tasting Notes:
The full-bodied 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape displays sweet black currant and cherry fruit, structure, acidity, and loads of tannin but wonderful sweetness, purity, and mouthfeel. This wine will clearly need 1-2 years of bottle age and drink well for 10-15 years.
