Their beautifully deep 2005 has a dark purple color and displays charcoal, blackberry and cassis fruit, with some smoky barbecue notes in the background. This full-bodied, opulent wine is still youthful at age 10, and promises to continue to evolve for another 15-20 years. Pure and stunning, this is a great wine of the vintage. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Very good saturated deep red. Cherry plum smoke and warm earth on the nose lifted by spices and menthol.

Cherry plum smoke and warm earth on the nose lifted by spices and menthol. Fat sweet lush and impressively concentrated; comes across as more powerful but less pliant today than the 2006 with a firm tannic structure for a wine from this property. Not at all over the top; in fact this gives the impression of a lower pH than the 2006 today. May be even better than it's showing now. 92(+?)

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2008
Aromas of crushed blackberry, tobacco and wet earth follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a clean, fruity finish. There's lots of chocolate, vanilla bean and fruit in the aftertaste. Best after 2012. – JS

Dry, and fresh and zesty and transparent. Really appetising and interesting. 17.5/20
