Transparent red-purple-crimson with a sweet, floral, spiced Morey nose. Flavors of dark stone fruits, a touch of tar and minerals, and some spice and masculine flavors that are very Morey in character. Approachable now but surprisingly put on some weight with air and time. Not a particularly dense 2005 but drinking nicely. Not really sure where this will go, so I'm inclined to drink my remaining bottles over the next year or two for its youthful fruit.
La Strada Sonia -- Wow, spectacular Burg and a wonderful encore to last night's '05 Chevillon Cailles! Explodes from the glass with blackberry cassis licorice and earthy goodness. Silky and caressing on the palate pumping out the tootsie roll fruity licorice all night. Yes!
