A terrific deal in mature Chateauneuf du Pape

If you've got a few in the cellar, I highly recommend popping one now. If you don't, Crush has it on sale for 30 and change...thievery at its finest.

Roger Sabon Reservee Chateauneuf du Pape '98

This '98 Sabon is an absolute beauty & typifies what potential glories lie w/in moderately aged, mature Chateauneuf. The aromas have taken on tertiary, complex naunces of sou bois, pine resin, date bread, savory plum, mesquite & cinammon spice notes. The texture is fine, as the tannins have melted away into the belly of the palate. The acidity propels a dusty sensation, fleshing out the hearty, dried herb flavors in the mouth to a long, dry finish, 91 points.
