How much a bottle is it? I second the call for tasting notes. Did you hear a chorus of angels in the background while you drinking it?

all I know is that I was amazed at the long finish - serious cherry and light smoke all the way. It was only after I researched about it, that I found out that RP also mentioned it (the long finish). I smelled the empty glass later, way later, and it smelled like it was FULL. just simply amazing.

I've tasted 6 of the 8 100 point bordeaux wines from 2005.I've tasted many 95-99 point wines,but it depends on who gave them the points.I hate parkers newest writer Josh Reynolds,Wine Enthusiast is a joke and I greatly disagree with James Laube.Its all an opinion.My tastes agree more with Tanzer,g.v,and Holladay. Vintage absolutely makes a differance,its an agricultural product.A good producer can make good wine in a bad year,but great wine in a good year.Too much rain,too much heat,etc.etc.etc.time you pick,ripeness of fruit,etc.
