Corbinrsquo;s hedonistic 2005 is somewhat of an anomaly given the massive structure and muscle possessed by most 2005s. This is an open-knit, broad, savory St.-Emilion possessing abundant notes of sweet cherries, black currants, roasted herbs, spice, and vanilla in its medium to full-bodied, lush personality. It is meant to be consumed during its first 12ndash;14 years of life.

Readers looking for a fruit-forward rather than structured, massive 2005 are advised to check out Corbin, a reasonably-priced, deliciously fruity effort offering notes of herbs, black cherries, currants, and a judicious touch of toasty oak. This hedonistic, plush, medium to full-bodied, round, generous, savory St.-Emilion should drink nicely for 10andndash;15 years.

Dark purple in color, showing very powerful aromas of crushed blackberry and sweet tobacco. Full-bodied, with silky, extracted tannins and lots of extraction overall, but thereandrsquo;s still so much going on. This is big and juicy. Best after 2015.

[Barrel tasting] Licorice and tar with blackberry. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a fruity finish. Long. Best ever from here?

Attractive aromas of currant and light vanilla. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh, fruity finish. Slightly hollow midpalate but nicely crafted. Best after 2007.
