    Winemaker's Notes:

    The signs of a very mature vintage remain evident in this 2005, with the enticing black-purple color of a beautifully ripe wine. Rich and complex aromas combine blackberries, black currants, and blueberry jam, to produce the complexity brought by careful and balanced aging. In the mouth the wine is firm and sound, with a youthful, spirited structure. The tannins are slightly forward and provide the wine with a good base for future aging. The finish is very satisfying, displaying a youthfulness which will give the wine a supple and tender character. Its good, full body is both mouth-watering and elegant. This very fine wine will improve with four to six more years of aging to reveal a whole new range of pleasures. Juicy duck and pigeon are ideal for this wine, as is prime rib. The wine can also share the table with variety meats.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Full ruby-red. Ripe, complex nose melds cassis, kirsch, licorice, earth, mocha and truffle. Ripe, sexy and sweet, with lovely energy and a youthfully cool quality to the dark fruit and mineral flavors. Precise, powerful Cotes de Castillon wine, finishing with building tannins and considerable breadth.
    Range: 90-91
