Château-Meyney St. Estephe 2005
Wine SpectatorAromas of currant and fresh flowers follow through to a medium-to-full body, with chewy tannins and a slightly woody finish, but the fruit comes through. Turns long and pretty. Best after 2010.
Wine AdvocateA dark ruby color is followed by aromas and flavors of sweaty leather, roasted herbs, spice box, and sweet cherries and plums. This superficial, pleasant, charming St.-Estephe lacks the depth, concentration, and finish of the vintage's finest wines. Drink it now and over the next 10-15 years.
