Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91(+?)

($70-$100) Good bright red-ruby. Subdued but pure aromas of currant, dark chocolate and sexy oak. Moderately sweet, medium-bodied and vinous, with ripe acidity and a floral element providing mid-palate lift. Still a bit medicinal and unevolved, but this has the serious structure to develop slowly and well in bottle. Finishes long and firm.

Good fresh zesty wine without too much dry tannin. Energy and fleshy.

Decanted for 5 hours. Gorgeous dark purple, bright and beautiful. Knockout nose which developed an entrancing perfume, difficult to actually drink for fear of reducing the source of this fragrance! On the palate, delicious, complex melange of fruit, sweet tannin, light toast and spice, all in balance. It becomes its own fragrance. Hard to resist now given its showing with decanting, this '05 has all the world ahead of it for its future.

Amazing wine. Perfect to drink at this time, perfect drink right after the bottle has been opened. Only concern was that it colored the glass a bit.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend

Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
