I originally bought two bottles of the 2005 a few years ago, during a "Buy One Get one for $0.05 Sale" at Beverages n More. The price was something ridiculously low ($10 or less) for a Bordeaux... I bought the two bottles as an adventure and as an experiment, not as a wine to pop open on my 15th anniversary. I popped open one bottle the day I bought it... Horrible. Tasted like cheap young wine, mixed with petrol soaked rocks. Just popped open my 2nd bottle this afternoon, and it has improved tremendously. The wine will never win any awards, but is drinkable now. If you own this wine, you could probably sit on it for another 1-1 1/2 years. Two years might be pushing it. I could see pairing it with a pork roast....

Unearth this over-achieving, value-priced gem, a ruby-colored treasure with a smooth and satisfying mouthfeel, effusive with ripe berry, plum and spice aromas and packed with generous flavors of ripe plum and cassis.

Pleasingly forward aromas and persistent red fruits; soft and suavely contoured. A nice, solid, young red Bordeaux that will pair nicely with a crusted pork loin.
