"One of the finest Glorias I have ever tasted, the dense ruby/purple-tinged 2005 reveals a big, sweet perfume of black olives, black cherries, cassis, spice box, and cedar. Boasting terrific fruit, medium to full body, and more power and richness than usual, it will provide delicious drinking during its first two decades of life."
