3 stars "Ripe, powerful wine. Notes of cherry and kirsch. Oak a little present. Firm, solid structure. A little hard and disjointed as malolactic not finished but undoubted potential. Drink 2010-2020. (16.5 points)" Best 2010-2020

92 points "92 out of 100...Displays gorgeous aromas of vanilla bean, mineral, raspberry and blackberry. Full-bodied, with very round, soft tannins and a long, rich, fruity finish. Beautiful. Best after 2016. 8,330 cases made." - WS " Best 2016-

92 points "92 out of 100...This huge, historic property, owned by Stephan von Neipperg, appears to have produced their finest wine to date. The dense purple-tinged 2005 offers up notes of creme de cassis, charcoal, camphor, and espresso roast. A sleeper of the vintage, it is a full-bodied, layered, super-concentrated, smooth as silk blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Enjoy this superb bargain-priced claret over the next 8-10 years." - WA "
