Rich depth of color and aromas of spices and concentrated candied fruit layer with raspberry, cherry, cassis and currant. Finely integrated oak aromas marry and intertwine the fruit to add complexity and depth. The wine is full and rich on the attack with dense coated tannins. Darker flavors of cocoa and espresso emerge to add even greater variety to the experience. As the wine opens, more and more intriguing elements unfold like hints of anise, toasted almonds, raspberry jam and a mineral earthiness. The mid-palate is weighty and chewy. The finish is long and complex. The 2005 will age gracefully for 10 to 20 years. In its youth, it will benefit from decanting.
