The 2005 vintage of this wine was ranked #1 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2008
Deep purple-red in color with intense and complex aromas. The nose has layers, such as spices, black and red fruit, herbs and mineral touches of lead pencil. This wine has elegant balance with velvety and well defined tannins, that evolve towards a concentrated mid palate that is filled with juicy tannins, followed by a very long persistence.
This is an ideal companion for game, lamb, and entrecote fillet. Also good with rich cocoa chocolate deserts.
