91pointsDomaine de Nalys 2005 Red (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

Starts off a bit funky, with scents of tar and rubber, but quickly rights itself and shows rich dark fruit with hints of hickory smoke. Flavors lean toward black cherry, but also feature smoke, grilled meat and licorice. It's medium- to full-bodied, with a firm structure that bodes well for cellaring. Try after 2012. Joe Czerwinski
