Tasting Notes

The Reiffers family has turned out a seductive 2005 offering notes of blueberries and raspberries interwoven with notions of crushed rocks and spring flowers. With medium body, sweet tannin, and outstanding purity, density, and ripeness, it is relatively approachable for a 2005. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2023.

Score: 91Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (17), April 2008

Tasted blind. Blackish ruby. Smells quite high in volatile acidity. Dangerous balance! Drying dusty tannins insist on the end. 13.5%
Drink 2012-2020
