Critical Acclaim

"The 2005 Hermitage Ex-Voto, which will spend 42 months in 100% new oak, possesses a blue/black color as well as a gorgeous perfume of black fruits, and a full-scale attack with huge glycerin, density, extraction, and tannin. This muscular blockbuster will benefit from 8-10 years of cellaring, and should keep for 50 years. 96-100"
100 Points

"Rather sleek, with fresh, very rounded plum, cherry and blackberry fruit held together by notes of black tea, sweet earth and hoisin sauce. The texture is polished and the finish very long, with echoes of mocha flittering throughout. There's plenty of grip in reserve, and this should blossom in the cellar. Far more refined than the 2003, though not quite as dynamic. Best from 2010 through 2025. 667 cases made."
