Kind of a downer given past performances of this label and the high quality of the '05 harvest. Seems overly roasted and earthy, with rubbery, drawn aromas that don't seem fully fresh. The palate is heavy, with cooked, leathery flavors of berry and fig. Finishes in similar fashion, with dull bitter flavors and leather.
