($150-$175) Good full red-ruby. Inviting, expressive aromas of plum, redcurrant, mocha, coffee, game, flowers and nutty oak. Sweet, fat and stuffed with fruit; quite silky in texture but a bit less refined than the 2006 in spite of its greater richness. Fairly full wine, finishing with lovely lingering perfume as well as slightly edgy tannins that will require a decade of cellaring.

Very dark crimson. Sweet and toasty nose with some energy and very lush palate cover. Ripe tannins. Sufficient acidity. Needs time but should make very fine old bones. Just slightly lacking on the finish.

At an awkward stage right now. Could use more time to develop. Closed nose, green vegetative undertones, and lots of menthol. Second day showed better but not near a 97 score.

Site Blog: Unidentified Appellation
Rauzan Segla is one of the best wines in the spotlighted appellation of 2005, Margaux. While famed Chateau Margaux will garner most of the attention and accolade, Rauzan Segla is an absolutely brilliant in this vintage! One of the most mouth-coating, viscous wines poured at UGC, flirting w/ exotic notions of Asian spices, black raspberry reduction, black currant and incense notes. Extracted w/ sinew, but admirably cut, with the precision of a luxury car?s hair-pin turn on the Autobahn. Take a bow Mr. Kolasa, you?ve produced a beauty
