This is by far my favorite Bordeaux in the $20 to $30 price range. “Elegance” was the first word that came to mind when I tasted it. Though I still recommend decanting this wine and letting it open up for a half hour or so, it is still one of the more approachable wines of the ‘05 vintage. Aromas of earth, macerated black cherry, violets, chocolate and cedar box jump from the glass, while on the palate you are treated to a seductive mingling of ripe black fruit, forest floor, roasted herbs followed by a smoky finish. This is a beautiful wine for the price and should drink well for the next 5 years or so.
