  • 2010 Domaine Pierre Usseglio & Fils Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée de mon Aïeul – France, Rhône, Southern Rhône, Châteauneuf-du-Pape (2/23/2018)

    Tasted double blind.

    Dark garnet color in the glass, fairly clear looking. Nose is a bit muted giving way to aromas of berries and tobacco. Flavors of cherries, berries and pepper. Medium to bright acidity, firm tannin, full bodied. Drink now with air or continue to hold.

    My guess was this is a Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, perhaps the 2010 Shafer. Man, talk about missing the barn during target practice.
