2005 Meyney, St-Estèphe

SKU #1038085 90 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This starts off a little bretty with barnyard undertones, but it blows off to flowers and rich fruit. Round and juicy, with yummy flavors. A long finish on this. Very spicy and earthy. St. Estephe character. Enjoy or age. Inner quote mark (2/2011)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Aromas of currant and fresh flowers follow through to a medium-to-full body, with chewy tannins and a slightly woody finish, but the fruit comes through. Turns long and pretty. Best after 2010. (JS, Web-2008) Inner quote mark

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 20% Petit Verdot. Magnum. Very winning indeed. Beautifully ripe with fully melded tannins but great depth and balance. 17/20 Inner quote mark (4/2017)

Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A dark ruby color is followed by aromas and flavors of sweaty leather, roasted herbs, spice box, and sweet cherries and plums... (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2008)

K&L Notes

From barrel: 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 29% Petit Verdot. Sweet and lush-delicious. Elegant style. We love this wine. Ready sooner than most. Mouth-coating wine. Elegance personified. New school Meyney-buy it. Tasted three times with consistent notes. Ralph says: Best I've ever tasted and showed superb at every tasting. Deep raspberry fruit on nose and palate, silky middle. *1/2+ (Clyde Beffa, K&L Bordeaux buyer)
