"Intense aromas of crushed berry, toasty oak, coconut and milk chocolate lead to a full-bodied palate, with soft, velvety tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Stylish and voluptuous. Best after 2013. 4,500 cases made.–JS " (WS)

"Grand Pontet’s 2005 exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, plenty of cassis and black cherry fruit, some licorice and sweet ripe tannin. Drink this medium to full-bodied wine over the next 10-12 years." (WA)

"Still deep in color, with nose packed with licorice, chocolate covered black cherry and plum with soft, round textures and a fresh, concentrated, blackberry, fennel and cocoa finish. This is just starting to drink well and the best is yet to come. 91 points - Tasted Jun 3, 2012" (JL)
