International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 138

($110; a 90/10 blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot) Saturated bright ruby color. Liqueur-like aromas of black cherry, raspberry and mocha; high-toned in a positive way. A sweet, powerful fruit bomb on the palate, with perfectly integrated acidity giving shape and grip to the dark berry and cherry flavors. Firm underlying minerality contributes to the wine's very fresh impression. Finishes with terrific aromatic persistence.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 174

The prodigious 2005 Claret possesses a dense purple color in addition to beautiful aromas of creme de cassis, smoke, graphite, and cedar. Full-bodied, opulent, and voluptuously-textured with superb depth and purity in addition to a savory mouthfeel, and a surprisingly fleshy, forward personality, it should last for 10-15 years, but who will be able to resist it for that long?

Vinfolio Author: Vinfolio Team Issue: 178

Shows a concentrated, sweet, nectar like nose of berry, currant and licorice. The palate is very extracted and rich with seamless balance of sweet, round fruit and solid acid profile.
