2009 Charles Melton Nine Popes
Aromatic wood on the nose and a touch of oak on the palate, this big wine could sit for a while or fill your senses immediately. Earth, chocolate, and some licorice show at the moment. Tasty and a bit more tannin right now than we personally dig, just be cool and mellowness will reward you.

"94 pts ... The bouquet offers a hedonistic blend of sweet red and black fruits, liqueur soaked plums, licorice and bramble; the palate is sweet-fruited and certainly warm, with a long and succulent finish. Drink through 2015."
"Very complex spicy nose. Sweet cedary aromatic from the whisper (25%) of new oak mingled with a hint of licorice. Plump mid palate with rounded tannins, this is another Popes to keep and allow to hit its straps fully a little ways down the track."
"The normal Charles Melton melange of techniques: whole bunch fermentation, along with de-stemmed but uncrushed fruit. Grenache responds favourably to whole bunch treatment which gives lovely aromatic lift. The ferment temperature is kept moderate (18-22c) to help retain fruit flavours and elegance. After pressing the wine was aged predominantly in older oak on its lees, with only 25% new oak used."

How fabulous is this wine? Oy! Black fruits, then red fruits, juicy but not jammy or heavy, incredible tannins giving the wine a kind of pop on the palate, so much flavor for so few dollars. Irresistible!

Purple and red fruits play nicely with spice and pepper, perhaps also hints of black licorice and tobacco. Really lively amd flavorful.

Off dry to dry, very pleasing and food friendly. Don't be fooled by the tutti frutti color.
