Upon opening the bottle was youthfully exuberant to the point of being a little disjointed. But all the components were there: length, acidity, bouquet (menthol and red fruits), big mouth feel, etc. It needs time. When I tried it an hour later (we tasted it first with two other 2005 St. Emilions), it had come together marvelously and challenged the two other very good wines that were 50% higher in price. Now plush and full, the wine went through an amazing transformation. A very good buy for a 2005 Bordeaux at under $35 with a case discount. 92+ points.
