International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 138

($110; cabernet sauvignon with 8% petit verdot) Saturated ruby-red. Cassis, licorice, mocha and mint on the nose, with some suggestions of superripe fruit. Sweet and lush in the mouth but with lovely lift to the fleshy flavors of blackberry, cassis, violet, tar, spices and bitter chocolate. Finishes with substantial ripe, suave tannins and outstanding length.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 174

The 2005 Metisse has soared in quality since I tasted it last year, putting on weight and showing much more drama and intensity than I thought. The final blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot has it all - a deep ruby/purple color and a beautiful nose of creme de cassis, vanilla, coffee bean, and spice box. The wine is full-bodied, has superb richness, silky tannins, and a very layered, rich mouthfeel. This is a sensational wine that can be drunk now or cellared for at least two decades or more.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Intense and concentrated, focused and complex, with dried currant, black cherry, cedar, sage and mineral flavors presented in a full-bodied style and framed by tight tannins. Better than previously reviewed.

Dark purple color. Full bodied. Bursting with dark fruit flavors, intermixed with cedar, and other earthy undertones. More of a Bordeaux in character than a Cali Cabernet. It did not go well with the food, but was still delicious on its own
