Ruby-red. Explosively fragrant nose offers a sexy array of red and dark berries, along with zesty minerality, fresh and dried flowers and cinnamon. Deep strawberry and blackberry flavors are remarkably elegant, with uncanny precision for a wine with such flavor impact. Whatever tannins are here have been enveloped by the vibrant, pure fruit. Finishes sweet and with superb breadth and length. (The Rare Wine Company, Sonoma, CA)

Smoke, charcoal, red and black cherry, blackcurrant. Tight-grained, firm tannin, more savoury than the 2005, meaty rather than juicy and with plenty more evolution to follow. (RH)

The 2005 Corullon |Las Lamas| is purple-colored with an expressive bouquet of earth, mineral, smoke, leather, and blueberry. This is followed by an elegant, ripe, full-flavored wine with excellent depth and concentration. Give it 3-4 years in the cellar to unwind and drink this stylish effort through 2017.
