The finest La Gaffeliere I have ever tasted the prodigious 2005 boasts a dense ruby/purple color in addition to a flamboyant bouquet of lead pencil shavings creme de cassis blackberries smoked meats incense and Asian spice. Fabulously deep and full-bodied as well as ethereal and exceptionally elegant for its explosive richness and intensity its lightness of being reflects the vineyard's sensational terroir. This succulent beauty appears to be approachable but that belies some significant tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2030+.

Has a fabulous opulent nose of crushed blackberry wild licorice and flowers. Full-bodied with velvety tannins lots of fruit and a long finish. A flavorful young red. Best after 2013. 4500 cases made. –JS

Pure aromas of dark berries graphite licorice and spices. Spicy very dark flavors of cassis blackberry minerals and spices complicated by a musky espresso note and a whiff of smoked meat. Given lovely definition by a firm tannic spine that calls for patience.
