International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 138

($47-$55) Red-ruby. Leather, mocha and a whiff of game on the nose; less pure and expressive today than the 2006. Big and rich but not particularly fruity. Presents a somewhat awkward combination of impressive volume and leafy cabernet. Finishes with tough, somewhat rustic tannins.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 176

A big-time sleeper of the vintage, this St.-Julien reveals notes of tapenade, spice box, cedar, sweet black cherries, and black currants. An opulent texture, terrific fruit, medium to full body, and abundant concentration suggest this stunning Gloria will provide plenty of pleasure over the next 15 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Licorice, blackberry and fresh cèpe on the nose. Full and velvety-textured, with lots of fruit and a long, caressing finish. Pretty and rich. The best Gloria in years. 18,000 cases made.

While this only hinted at bordeaux typicity, I could tell it's a solid, well-made wine that shows many of this stellar vintage's best attributes. It was big, modern-styled, balanced, dark-fruited and full on the palate, with a long, long finish. And, at the tender age of 7, it was ready to drink, and will only improve with additional bottle time. Give it another three to five years and watch the magic happen.

One of my favorite St. Juliens for the price point. Delivers dark berries, a hint of oak and very smooth tannins. Long finish. Drinking nicely right now.

Nice ruby red color. Strong earthy odor at first but fades after a few minutes. Strong full tastes of cassis and chocolate. A nice wine but not sure it is worth the price.
