Dark in color with some of the standard Graves aromas of old earth, gravel and fruit and yes, slight smoke/tobacco. Rich flavors of the same aromas with relatively smooth tannins. Still young and will need more time, but based on some of the hype about this wine, I was expecting a little more in terms of fruit and thickness (then again maybe I was more in the mood for a California Cab). Don't get me wrong, this is an excellent wine with nice character, elegance and quite smooth texture. Decanted for 90 minutes and would have benefited from more time had I not been thirsty... enjoyable now but will keep.

Nose: smoke, black fruit, earthy. Taste: Full-bodied, good length, generous, still this very pleasant smoke and earth notes, black fruit jam. Could be drunk now but as potential to age thanks to its tannins.

Mocha; good structure, very nice fruit and approachable. Perhaps not at the Parker-given 98 points, but lovely

A pure elixir of young Pape, with extremely rounded edges and the poise of a Super Bowl quarterback. Deep, concentrated dark fruit is found in the midpalate, with tiers of truffle and smoky graphite notes stretching out on the impressive finish. I headed off to a Pape Clement vertical literally an hour after this tasting and it really put this ?05 in perspective. While the results of the 'progressive er' for Pape for somewhat mixed, I think this effort will easily contend w/ the finest wines made at the Chateau under Bernard Magrez

Plum and blackcurrant and then WOW on the palate, just an incredibly deep, rich, luxurious wine. Unbelievably complex and yet already smooth. What a treat.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
