2004 Château Mont-Redon Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Popped and poured so nose was a little closed but it did show vanilla hints. . The color was very garnet. Across the palate there were notes of plum, cherry and cake spice all wrapped with a slight mineral edge. The tannins were smooth and well-integrated. Paired well with my Veal Oscar. The grapes for this blend come from the left bank of the Rhone River between the towns f Orange and Avignon. this blend consists of 65% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 10% Cinsault, 5% Mourvede and 5% Counoise- Muscardin- Vaccarèse. An excellent introduction to Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
