International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 138

($125) Full medium ruby. Smoky, lower-toned aromas of black raspberry, mocha, earth and tobacco, lifted by a pungent minty quality and a whiff of resin. Here, too, the acidity is quite pronounced today, and with moderate mid-palate flesh and sweetness the current impression is a bit ungenerous. Finishes quite tight, with a slight sharpness to the acidity. These 2005s may well be in an awkward stage today, and my scores may come to look overly conservative, but in any event they should not be opened anytime soon.

From Paradise Hills Vineyard.Sumptuous nose and some tea-leaf refreshment but a little austere still. Lift and life ? not so dissimilar from the Viader Proprietary red 2004 tasted immediately beforehand.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 174

The 2005 Merlot, which is now called Rive Droite (and this is the last one), is an 800-case blend with some Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc added. An elegant, dark ruby/purple-colored wine with a sweet nose of espresso roast, dark black cherries, licorice, underbrush, and truffle in an elegant, full-bodied, rich, concentrated style, this wine should drink nicely for 12-15+ years.

Deep, concentrated pomerol like, but on steroids.
