Tasting Notes

94 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Unus is 65% Malbec and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon from the same 77 year old vineyard. The wine was aged for 16 months in 100% new French oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Inky purple, it has a super-expressive perfume of toasty oak, pencil lead, cocoa, plum, and black cherry. Medium to full-bodied, plush, and full-flavored, this concentrated, well-balanced effort will improve with another 6-8 years in the bottle and provide pleasure through 2030." (Dec. 2007) 90 (+?) points from Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright medium ruby. Slightly roasted aromas of currant, licorice and spicecake. Began a bit clenched and quite primary, but showed a more pliant, refined texture as it opened in the glass, with harmonious acidity leavening the wine's sweet fruit and exotic fruitcake ripeness. Finishes with fine tannins and very good persistence." (Jan/Feb '08) 90 points from Wine Spectator: "Polished and forward, with dark blueberry and blackberry fruit flavors spread over ripe, round tannins and followed by a long finish tinged with chocolate and loam. Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2008. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 1,823 cases made." (Nov. 30, 2007)
