Such a beautiful, perfumed nose! Nuanced, sculpted; swirls of blueberry, chocolate and coffee. Tremendously elegant, finely cut and glamorous - would grace any catwalk. Aristocratic poise displaying long-legged cashmere-clad tannins. So long. So very long. (TC)

The medium-bodied 2005 Ornellaia shows plenty of delineation in its dark cherries, blueberries, spices, minerals and crushed rocks. The 2005 doesn't have the detail of the 2004 or the richness of the 2006, but it does offer notable finesse and clarity in an understated style for this wine. My impression is that this will be a relatively early-maturing vintage of Ornellaia, which is not a bad thing, considering the age-worthiness of the two vintages which surround it. In 2005 Ornellaia is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. It is a big success in this vintage.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Displays beautiful aromas of ripe fruit, with currant, plum and blackberry. This complex and full-bodied Tuscan red has soft, polished tannins and a long, long finish. Shows a deft hand in the winemaking.

Bright fruit and well balanced. Very floral.

Weine zum Zelebrieren und Geniessen, am festlichen Tisch oder vor dem Cheminée. Reife Weine mit Finesse verlangen eher feine Speisen. Bei konzentrierten, jungen Weinen darf es eine etwas gehaltvollere Küche sein. Braten- oder Wildgerichte, Wildgeflügel, Roastbeef, Châteaubriand und kräftig, würzige Käsesorten wie Gruyere, Tilsiter oder reifer Brie.

Drinking nicely now but give it a few more years. Feel free to have this at Flour + Water in SF. Awesome restaurant.
