Ripeness shows on the nose, a rich mix of black and red fruits backed by black truffle and savory flavors. There is power on the palate yet a flowing elegance, all so well balanced. The tannins are ripe and rounded yet do give structure and there is hidden fruit behind them.

Wine EnthusiastThis is powerful, a fine expression of the richness of 2005. Dense and dusty tannins fit in the structure of ripe, black plums and currants. It has just the right amount of acidity to keep fresh among all this richness.

Wine SpectatorThis shows lots of jammy, ripe and fresh fruit character on the nose. Full-bodied, with loads of boysenberry and dark chocolate flavors and very silky, round tannins. Already delicious. Best after 2012.
