The 2005 Entity is 100% Shiraz 100% barrel-fermented in 45% new French oak. Opaque purple-colored it delivers a nearly ethereal perfume of smoky oak spice box pencil lead meat game violets and blueberry muffin. Full-bodied yet surprisingly elegant this Shiraz has superb balance great depth layers of flavor and a very long pure finish. It will surely evolve for 6-8 years but few will be able to delay their gratification.Importer: Gavin Speight Old Bridge Cellars Napa CA; tel. (707) 258-9552; www.johnduvalwines.com

Hugely aromatic nose combines powerful blackberry dark cherry licorice mocha and violet scents. Lush and velvety but with bright minerality giving the dark berry flavors remarkable vivacity. Fills out with air picking up deeper espresso and high-octane chocolate notes. But this is all about fresh energetic pure fruit. Finishes on a bright nervy note of berry skin with superb length.
