International Wine CellarRuby-red. Tighter, high-pitched aromas of black raspberry, spices and flowers. Dominated today by its spine but this tactile wine is stuffed with material and is surprisingly easy to taste today. Quite sturdy on the back end but with very good black peppery lift. The tannins are firm but broad and sweet. If you have to open these 2005s soon, make sure to give them time in a decanter, notes Gouges.
