Still young-tobacco-gravelly dark fruit. Letting it air for 30 minutes after initial taste at least.

Decanted and allowed to open over a couple of hours. This wine blossomed with deep, dark fruit, gravel, graphite. Bright acidity but soft lingering tannins. Nice long finish. Have a couple more bottles that I will give another 3-5 years

Colt 45 works every time. Remember those commercials? https://youtu.be/0pK5HmuCMBM I do. Grand puy Lacoste is my go to Bordeaux. It never disappoints, this one is still a little young but a great pauillac with graphic , dark fruit and just starting to show more complexity. The 2012 is on the market for $50 probably one of the better Cabernet values in the market especially given Napa prices recently. As for this 05, drink now or over the next 20 years

Delicious and powerful wine, gravel and dark cassis, gripping chewy tannin. Muscular and very youthful. Will be interesting to check back in on.

Enjoyed this way too late in the evening for proper notes. Everything we drank last night was over the top. Cheers and thank you @Gregory Mellis

On opening it’s tight and lively. Firm tannin and very present acidity. Bramble, leather tobacco, and pencil lead. Some blueberry and blackberry come through as well but it’s certainly not calling the shots. Really great wine and I may have drunk it too young. Or an hour isn’t enough to let it open.

I wanted more out of this vintage. Shitty to say about it cause it was still really good.

Delight in every sip! Very smooth and balanced. Couldn't stop drinking it. Good structure, dark fruits with just the slightest hint of vanilla. Lighter tannins kept it from a perfect 10!!
