Mike Supple - JJ Buckley, January 2013
Violet to purple color. Explosive fresh raspberry wild honeycomb vanilla and mint on the nose. Medium juicy tannins that are very well balanced. Long finish of coffee raspberries and blueberries.

Very aromatic showing blackberry and currant aromas with some licorice. Full-bodied with supersilky tannins and a rich decadent fruity finish. Caresses the palate. Stylish and opulent. Best after 2011. 10000 cases made... Very aromatic showing blackberry and currant aromas with some licorice. Full-bodied with supersilky tannins and a rich decadent fruity finish.

This deep ruby/purple-colored 2005 is a classic Pauillac. A big sweet kiss of road tar aromas interwoven with cedarwood smoke spice box herbs and black currants emerges from the glass of this unexpectedly precocious up-front Pauillac. Fleshy with medium to full body as well as good acidity and structure it lacks complexity but offers a generous mouthful of wine at a realistic price. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.
