WS 93
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2005
Dark color with complex aromas of blackberries flowers and mace with undertones of nutmeg. Full-bodied with a solid core of velvety tannins and ripe fruit. Goes on and on...

Offering cedary notes with some hints of black olive tapenade, grilled meats, spice box and wood with black and red currants, this wine seems fully mature, lusty, rich and undeniably a major success in this vintage. The tannins are largely resolved and the wine is drinking beautifully, so there is no reason to defer your gratification for this wine. Drink now through 2025. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Ruby-red. Aromas of black raspberry tobacco minerals and mocha. Suave silky lush and round; quite full but with lovely inner-mouth energy and aromatic character.

Suave silky lush and round; quite full but with lovely inner-mouth energy and aromatic character. Seamless deep flavors of redcurrant fruitcake and minerals. Finishes with excellent mounting persistence the dusty fine tannins buried in fruit. A terrific effort for the vintage and likely to age gracefully over the next decade or two.

On the palate the wine enters soft and builds well in the mid-palate to a nice full lush wine. Considering how intense the new oak usually is in Pavie the oak tones have integrated very well with the fruit and accent the dark rich cherry and cranberry with a nice spicy hint of cedar and vanilla. Light minerality carries the fruit in to the finish. Starting to be drinkable right now and should age for many more years.
