The outstanding 2005 Ermitage La Sizeranne shows classic graphite pen ink and creme de cassis notes a dark ruby/purple color medium to full body good richness and moderately high tannins. This is a rather backward broodingly primordial style of Ermitage to age for 5-7 years and drink over the following two decades. Michel said he thinks it's one of the best cuvees of Sizeranne made since the 1990. Importer: Terlato Wines International Lake Bluff IL; tel. (847) 604-8900

Vibrant aromas of blackberry boysenberry pepper and licorice. Densely packed creamy and intense with strong acids giving shape and definition to the dense dark berry flavors. This has compelling sweetness with a percentage of intermixed dark grapes giving the wine added complexity.
