Robert Parker

95+ Points, Robert M. Parker, Jr., Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Levy and McClellan's 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon, which spent 26 months in new oak (mostly Taransaud), is developing at an incredibly slow rate. Its opaque ruby/purple color is accompanied by beautiful aromas of roasted coffee, melted chocolate, creme de cassis, burning embers, camphor, and a hint of cedar. On the palate, the wine combines considerable substance, power, and extract with a sense of harmony as well as elegance. Black currant, blackberry, and gamy, meaty notes are also present in this full-bodied effort with an incredibly long finish. The wine is just beginning to shed some tannin and become accessible. It will benefit from another 4-5 years of bottle age, and will easily last for three decades or more." 12/08

94 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "Medium ruby. Knockout nose combines scents of cassis, tobacco, gravel, mocha and tropical dark chocolate. Boasts lovely sweetness and intensity, along with enticing inner-mouth perfume and lift. Classic 2005 in its energy, definition and light touch. Wonderfully suave tannins make this deep beauty accessible 2016 but it has the energy and tension to age gracefully for many more years. Finishes ripely tannic, tactile and very long, with a savory complexity and firming minerality" 05/16
