He also appears to have built in more density. The 2005 is a beautifully exuberant sexy wine displaying copious black cherry toasty oak raspberry and vanillin notes. Pure rich medium to full-bodied and luscious patience will not be required for this beauty as it can be consumed now and over the next 12-15 years.

Aromas of dark purple fruit mix with notes of coffee bittersweet chocolate loamy earth and limestone soil. Full-bodied this 2005 has evolved nicely displaying an approachable texture with soft tannins that have integrated well with the dark fruit. Ample acidity keeps this lively and vibrant offering wonderful drinking pleasure now and for the next 5-8 years. An excellent value for the vintage.
