93 Wine Advocate Points
“The 2005 Clos de L’Obac is 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Garnacha, and the balance Syrah, Carinena, and Merlot. The wine was aged for 14 months in new French oak and bottled unfiltered. More structured and expressive than its sibling, the nose delivers smoke, slate, scorched earth, black cherry, and blueberry. Plush and layered, the wine has excellent length and 6-8 years of cellaring potential. It will be at its best from 2013 to 2025.”
