2005 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe

99 points James Suckling: "The purity of fruit in this is fascinating with plums, currants and other dark fruits. Then there is another layer of spices and chocolate. So much cassis. Full and very layered with chewy polished tannins and a long, long finish. Just starting to open. Changes all the time. Still needs a year or two but gorgeous to drink already." (10/2015) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Cos d’Estournel is another great success from this property, which is owned by Michel Reybier.

2005 Lascombes, Margaux Top Pick!
2005 Lascombes, Margaux

94 points Wine & Spirits: "A joyous Lascombes, this is the first vintage to hit stride since the US investment firm Colony Capital took over in 2001. It's a meaty wine draped in fragrant tannin, built for long aging. It's also an exuberant wine, in both the bright, red currant-scented fruit and the bristle of the tannin. A playfully complex flavor lasts for minutes, the wine still youthful and fresh four days after it was opened. Margaux chic." (03/2008) 93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "This well-filled, impeccably balanced wine starts with aromas of che ...Read More »

96 points Decanter: "Traditional Rioja at its ageworthy best, the Tondonia red is a cuvée of Tempranillo with 20% Garnacha and 5% each of Graciano and Mazuelo. Leafy, gamey and sweet, with tangy acidity and a volatile lift. (TA)" (10/2017) 94 points James Suckling: "Lovely depth of fruit to this mature red with chocolate, dark tea and bark.

2005 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Gran Reserva Rioja

Finally, the great 2005 Gran Reserva from our favorite Rioja winery has arrived! As is the case with so many other great spots in Spain, Bodega Casa Juan is located opposite the village church, in the beautiful walled pueblo of Laguardia. The winery is a converted flour mill, featuring concrete tanks for fermenting and blending the wine, and barrels that are used for up to seven years.

2005 Dom Pérignon Brut Rosé Champagne

Medium to full body, with ultra-fine tannins that feel like fine silk. The finish goes on for minutes. It floats across the palate. The winemaker says the closet vintage to this is the 1990, but I think this is better." (12/2016) 95 points Vinous: "The 2005 Dom Pérignon Rosé is intriguing, complex and multi-faceted.

2005 Screaming Eagle Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon, which I loved last year, has gotten even better, something I saw across the board with the bottled 2005s (a superb year for Bordeaux varietals). This blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc was aged in 67% new French oak for 21 months. It possesses a gorgeous, Pauillac-like bouquet of cedar, creme de cassis, licorice, smoke, and earth as well as sweet tannins, full body, fabulous layers of fruit, a noble sweetness, and outstanding length.

2005 Lopez de Heredia "Viña Bosconia" Reserva Rioja

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A worthy follow up to the 2004 is the 2005 Viña Bosconia Reserva, a wine that they consider the most rustic and powerful in the winery, but that I find as elegant and subtle as it gets. This feels very much in line with the 2004, maybe a notch above even, a lower yielding year. The nose is somehow closed and feels young with the elegant rusticity lurking from the bottom of the glass, clean and precise. The tannins are velvety and there is great acidity--a constant here.

Full-bodied and extremely finely textured on the palate, lasting for minutes. A joy to drink now. Get some." (11/2015) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red.

2005 Pavie Macquin, St-Emilion (1.5L)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Inky bluish/purple in color, Pavie Macquin produced a prodigious effort from St.-Emilion in 2005. Its crushed, chalky rock minerality, massive body, and high tannin make for a wine to forget for another decade. Super-loaded, concentrated and powerful, this wine should turn out great, but patience will be required. The blackberry and cassis fruit are there in abundance, but so is a massive structure. (RP) 96+" (06/2015) 96 points Wine Spectator: "Terrifically dense, with layers of plum sauce, melted red licorice ...Read More »

2005 Trotanoy, Pomerol

96 points John Gilman: "Ironically, as Trotanoy is one of my personal favorites in all of Bordeaux, I had never had the opportunity to cross paths with the 2005 Château Trotanoy prior to the Wine Workshop tasting. This is destined to be a great vintage of Trot, which I have little doubt will end up superior to the more muscular 2010 that seems to have caught the imagination of so many commentators. The combination of ripeness and outstanding acidity that is found in the very best 2005s is very rare, and these qualities are certainly on display in this ve ...Read More »

2005 Promise Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine, aged 100% in new Taransaud and Darnajou cooperage for 30 months (talk about an expensive endeavor!), is the product of wine producer Steve McPherson. This is an impressive wine and a big boy (14.9% alcohol) that displays beautifully pure blueberry and blackberry fruit, incense and subtle background graphite. It is full-bodied, opulent, extremely fresh, and shockingly youthful, but again, that has been a common theme running through all of these 2005s. In fact, it tastes more like a 3- to 4-year-old Nap ...Read More »

2005 Haut-Bages-Libéral, Pauillac

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Very opulent, generous and rich. It shows all the glories of the vintage, with huge but sufficiently restrained fruit, and exuberant tannins. (RV)" (06/2006) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Very aromatic, showing blackberry and currant aromas, with some licorice. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a rich, decadent, fruity finish. Caresses the palate. Stylish and opulent. (JS) " (03/2008) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Haut-Bages Libéral offers loads of blackcurrant fruit, licorice, spice and forest ...Read More »

2005 Lanson "Gold Label" Vintage Brut Champagne

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "With 49% Chardonnay and 51% Pinot Noir from grand cru vineyards, this well-balanced wine is just coming into its best years. Crisp and dry, following the Lanson style of no malolactic fermentation, the wine is full of white fruits, citrus and hints of toast, based around a tangy, mineral texture. Drink now and until 2025. *Editors' Choice* (RV)" (12/2015) 92 points Wine Spectator: " Smoke and marzipan notes are layered with baked currant and lemon curd flavors in this lively Champagne, with a creamy mousse. Balanced and acce ...Read More »

2005 Baron de Brane, Margaux

Decanter: "A second wine of an excellent Margaux at 12 years old in a great vintage should be on its absolute plateau right now, and while this is fairly evolved, it offers plenty of gentle soft leather and brioche pleasure. There is some sweet brambly fruit with the faintest trace of brett, but overall it's a beautiful wine to enjoy over the next few years. It's crying out for slow-braised lamb. (JA) " (11/2017) Wine Spectator: "Shows currant bush and sweet tobacco, with berry underneath on the nose. Medium-bodied, with an earthy, funky finish. Good e ...Read More »

2005 Bollinger "La Grande Année" Rosé Champagne

96 points James Suckling: "A good rest on lees in the cellar through to May 2015 has seen this salmon-colored rosé develop a wealth of dried porcini mushroom aromas that really make a savory statement. It's gently smoky and shows some dried cherry fruits too – a gastronomic dream! The palate's smoothly cut with creamy red-cherry-fruit flavors and hints of pink grapefruit. It freshens into the finish. Thanks especially to a complex layered structure, this really is a brilliant rosé."
