2005 Quinault L'Enclos, St-Emilion

SKU #1044447 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium ruby-red. Sexy aromas of cherry, minerals, iron and smoked meat. Juicy and sappy for the year, with lovely energy to the concentrated flavors of cherry, minerals, smoke, flowers and earth. Very sophisticated, shapely wine with a long, ripely tannic finish throwing off notes of smoke, minerals and iron. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2008)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Beautiful chocolate and blackberry aromas and flavors follow through to a full body, with soft, round tannins and a very long finish. (JS) Inner quote mark (3/2008)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Made when the proprietor was Dr. Alain Raynaud, this 2005 is a blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec from a vineyard that is a true clos within the town of Libourne. Moderately intense mulberry and blueberry fruit are present in a medium-bodied, delicate and finesse style of dark ruby/purple-colored wine that is fresh and not nearly as powerful and extracted as most 2005s tend to be. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

K&L Notes

The 2005 is 70% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 6% Malbec.

If you open this wine for a party watching basketball make sure you open it a few hours ahead of time or just buy a bunch and lay it down. This is a beautiful layered wine. The layered nose is filled with fruit and floral notes and than more layers on the palate. Big ripe fruit balanced with mineral and spice flavors. This wine has a lot to give with patience either in decanting or cellaring.
