John Duval Eligo 2005


SKU 767749011031


Dense red-purple color. Perfumed concentration of dark fruits and fragrant oak. An explosion of black cherry, blueberry fruit with great purity and layered complexity. The texture is rich and creamy but has ample tannin structure for balance. Elegant, long finish.

Wine EnthusiastUnderneath a slightly smoky, toasty exterior lies an explosion of cherry, raspberry and black cherry fruit that's wonderfully pure without being simple. The texture is creamy and lush without being unstructured or jammy, while the finish goes on and on. Drink now-2020.

Wine SpectatorSmooth and round, with a distinct gamy note that shoulders past a lot of the ripe plum, blackberry and currant fruit struggling to come to the fore. Tannins are there, but not overwhelming. Shiraz. Drink now through 2016.
