Wine SpectatorRipe but well-harnessed by fine-grained tobacco and roasted vanilla-tinged tannins, which carry the plum sauce, braised fig and mulled cherry notes along. There's a lingering licorice note on the finish. Drink now through 2020.

Wine AdvocateOne of the finest 2008 Chateauneuf du Papes money can buy is Pierre Usseglio's offering (the only 2008 they made). Composed of 80% Grenache and the rest Syrah, Mourvedre, and Cinsault, it possesses a dark ruby/purple color, surprisingly intense fruit, lots of garrigue, pepper and spice box, a medium to full-bodied texture and a heady finish. Performing better out of bottle than it did last year in the cellars, it should be consumed during its first 5-6 years of life. Restaurants take note!
