had this with a porterhouse steak. 18.08.2010 the first impression was a fine tight Knit burgundy opened up after 15-20 minutes to a fine silky cab, with slight vanilla flavours. after an hour the wine had turned and tasted a bit like a port wine..... comment: this vintage should probably have drunk already some years ago... interested in hearing other comments on same vintage

Wine Spectator(2005 Vintage) "A showy young wine that's smooth, rich and concentrated. Delivers firm, intense yet supple layers of currant, cedar, toasty, cedary oak and tannins that firm up, offering hints of mineral, sage and dusty berry. Best from 2009 through 2013. 32,344 cases made."
