"A deep, youthfully brooding bouquet offers dark cherry, blackcurrant, incense and suave oak spices. Spicy cherry and dark berry flavors show an exotic anise quality and slow-building sweetness. This gently tannic, chewy, extremely persistent wine finishes with echoes of oak spice and floral pastille, not to mention excellent vivacity."
|Wine Spectator Review:
Espresso and allspice flavors show oak, but there's plenty of ripe black fruit on the palate. The plush texture is supported by ripe, muscular tannins, and licorice, mineral and graphite notes add complexity. Best from 2010 through 2020. –TM
Robert Parker Review:
The 2005 Termes was aged for 16 months in seasoned French oak. It exhibits a classy nose of cedar, mineral, spice box, and blackberry. Sweet, layered, and ripe, with tons of flavor, this balanced effort will evolve for 3-4 years and drink well through 2018.-JM
