    "Very luscious healthy shaded blackish ruby with brick rim. But on the nose this seems a bit faded and lacks freshness... Bloody and big and fruity and powerful and lots of impact with rather furry tannins on the finish. Long and neat and gives lots of pleasure. Mint toffees on the nose and tough, chewy, grainy tannins. Tannins will not meld more, I feel. This became increasingly attractively fresh and floral on the nose as it sat in the glass." (17.5pts JR, Oct 2005)

    "...it is still one of the greatest wines I have ever tasted for its tremendous singularity and intensity. The color is still a murky plum/purple that shows a bit of amber at the edge. The nose is strikingly intense, with an almost liquid minerality intermixed with fig, truffle, spice, plum, and black cherry as well as blueberry. In the mouth the wine is massive, with searing levels of tannins, but monumental levels of extract and concentration." (98 pts. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book 4th Ed. , Jan. 2003)
