International Wine CellarGood ruby-red. Musky, very ripe aromas of black raspberry, chocolate and espresso; shows more of a torrefaction element than the 2003. Then supple, sweet and fleshy, with a distinctly lush mouth feel. Flavors of dark fruits, smoke and meat show impressive early complexity. Finishes sweet, sexy and long, with notes of raspberry, blackberry and espresso. Outstanding merlot in the making.
