Château Corbin St. Emilion Owc 2005

Member Review by handymom:

Not sure if I'm qualified, but I'll give it a go. Love the nose. Mineral, cherry. Tannins are still too overwhelming. Finish is harsh, burnt. One review said to wait a few years (2009?). Another said drink within two years (2007?).

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 10–15 years.

Rich, smooth nose. A lively drink. Readable and easy to like. Great balance and length. 2013–2021.

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 there’s still so much going on. This is big and juicy. Best after 2015.

Corbin’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 12–14 years of life.

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