Lynsolence 2005 (750ml)
91 WA
"...The finest cuvee yet produced at this estate, the 2005 exhibits an explosive bouquet of flowers, blueberries, black cherry jam, smoke, and graphite. A superb texture, full-bodied, powerful flavors, sweet but high tannin, a multilayered mid-palate, loads of glycerin, and a stunning finish provide quite an impression. ...This wine should close down after bottling, and evolve for 15-20 years...92-94" WA 4/06."This stunning, 100% Merlot was fashioned from extremely low yields. It received a full Burgundian treatment of malolactic in barrel, aging on its lees, and the experimental racking system of rotation of the barrels on the Oxoline system (a barrel racking system on wheels where the barrels can be turned without opening, thus in effect doing a batonnage of the lees without any exposure to air). The deep blue/purple-colored 2005 Lynsolence boasts a bouquet of blueberries, graphite, acacia flowers, and wet steel. The wine is full-bodied with exceptionally high glycerin levels, huge tannin, and good acidity. The oak is relatively obscured by high extract and glycerin, and this powerful, muscular, large-scaled effort requires 5-7 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025+...91" 04/08
