Château Talbot Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

9.256 ratings on Delectable
$95

A strong effort for Talbot, the 2005 is more showy and forward than most wines of this vintage. While there is plenty of tannin, it is sweet and well-concealed behind an intriguing bouquet of sweet herbs, licorice, smoked game, black currants, and cherries. This fleshy, medium to full-bodied St.-Julien exhibits a silky sweetness to its texture and tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020+. Robert Parker

This is a perfect match with duck and pork. I'm so glad Laura Miller gave Kristy and I an excuse to drink plonk today.
