International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 136

($317) Bright ruby. Heady bouquet of spiced red berries, kirsch, fresh flowers, Indian spices and minerals. A sweet, palate-staining midweight, with luscious raspberry and blueberry flavors, sneaky tannic grip and slow-building cherry-cola on the close. I love the texture and focus here.

Lastly, from the very dome of the granite hill of Ermitage is the 2005 Ermitage l'Ermite. An extraordinarily powerful wine that probably needs 10-15 years in the bottle (last year I thought 20 was probably conservative), this is a 100-year wine and probably best appreciated by our descendants rather than anyone currently over the age of 30. Dense purple to the rim, with notes of crushed rock, charcoal, roasted meats, and enormous quantities of blue and black fruits, this wine is almost painfully rich and thick, with mouthsearing levels of tannin and zesty acidity. Monumental!

Wine Spectator Author: James Molesworth

Supersleek and racy, with layers of red and black licorice snap, red and black currant, plum sauce, coffee, iron and violet. Incredibly long, with superb minerality that keeps it all harnessed, leaving a nearly salinelike feel on the tangy finish. A steel-plated red that should age beautifully.
