Tasting Notes:

95 points ""(Drink 2006-2021. $33.00). The blockbuster, inky/ruby/purple-hued 2005 Explorateur Shiraz offers sweet aromas of blackberries, white pepper, licorice, and graphite. While full-bodied, powerful, and rich, it also displays striking finesse and elegance, no doubt because of its aging in French oak. It should last for 15 or more years." Robert Parker " Best 2009-2022
rated: April 30, 2008 , Wine Spectator
90 points "Supple and silky in texture, with a lovely range of red plum and blackberry flavors, which linger on the plush finish, but without excess weight. Drink now through 2015. 7,000 cases made. –HS" Best 2008-2015
