    Winemaker's Notes:

    Since its birth until its recent bottling, this vintage does not stop to impress us. The nose is exuberant, combining notes of complex fruit smells spicy and almost more exotic like mango. The mouth is full, fleshy and perfectly balanced despite the high alcohol content. The silky tannins caress the palate and give wine an incredible length. This wine is already delicious, but you can also bet on a long and successful evolution if you know how to be patient.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Has loads of coffee, blackberry and cigar box aromas, turning to crushed blackberry. Full-bodied, with big, chewy tannins and an aftertaste of vanilla, blackberry and espresso. Mouthpuckering. Very concentrated and structured for this wine. Best after 2015. 7,500 cases made. –JS

    I remember tasting a number of Kirwans from the 19th century that had held up surprisingly well for over 100 years. While the 2005 will probably not last that long, it may be one of the finest wines this estate has made in the last fifty years. This brilliant, full-bodied, powerful, broodingly backward Margaux exhibits a dense purple hue along with notes of charcoal, licorice, blackberries, and graphite. Exceptionally concentrated, possessing high tannin, zesty acidity, and a 45-second finish, it should be purchased only by patient connoisseurs. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2035. 92+
