Expert Reviews

93 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2005

($70-$100) Good red-ruby. Deep, aromatic, highly complex nose combines raspberry, espresso, tree bark, leather, graphite, cedar, coconut and exotic woodsmoke. Lush, sweet and pure, with very ripe flavors of currant, dark chocolate and graphite, nicely framed by perfectly integrated acidity. Finishes broad and suave; the tannins here make those of the young 2004 seem a bit tough by comparison. Superb, complete wine. Drink from 2010 to 2020.

Member Notes

Good, but needs more time
10/02/2008
by Gibbons....
Opened at let stand upright for 2 hours, then decanted for another hour before beginning to drink. Opaque red, menthol-currant and floral piercing nose. Full mouthfeel of overly tannic vibrancy. By the time the meal was over an hour later, this was smoothing out the harshness and getting really exotic.
