2007 Clos Saint-Jean Deus-Ex Machina Chateauneuf-du-Pape

This dry red wine has deep ruby colour. On nose it has pronounced level aromas of mint, licorice, dates, black plum, earth, black cherry and touch of prune. Medium acidity and full bodied. Quite high in tannin but ripe and fine. On palate it has quite high intensity flavours of black plum, black cherry, earth, meat and toasted licorice. Fairly long length with black plum finish. (95) Full and ripe, very spicy, good layer.
