93 Pts Robert Parker - The Wine Advocate

From the Critics:

  • "Slightly better than the 2004, the 2005 retains the same style, but possesses better acidity, a deeper color, and a fleshier, richer mouthfeel. Havens co-ferments the Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon (which can't be easy) for the Black and Blue Proprietary Red Wine, and in 2005, the result is a seamless, full-bodied, opulent, dense ruby/purple-hued wine with a sweet nose of camphor, acacia flowers, blackberries, pepper, and a hint of roasted meats. This is a ripe, refreshing effort because of the good acidity this vintage provided. It should drink well for a decade or more." -Robert Parker

    "A blend of 62% Syrah and 38% Cabernet Sauvignon. Ruby-red. Reduced, rather stunted nose. Then lush and sweet in the mouth, distinctly thicker and fuller than the two Syrah bottlings but with sound acidity to frame the blackberry, licorice and leather flavors. Finishes with substantial tongue-dusting tannins. Havens describes the Cabernet from his vineyard around the winery in Yountville as foursquare and earthy." -90-93 Points Stephen Tanzer- International Wine Cellar
