Wine Advocate 94 points - The 2005 Emeritus is a bigger, more structured wine that is still tightly wound. It will require 5-7 years of cellaring to become a bit more civilized and should still be providing pleasure through 2030.
94+ Points (Apr 2010)
Wine Spectator 90 points - Black cherry, mineral, light herbal and licorice notes mingle in this modern red. The texture is light yet dense, with well-integrated tannins and just enough acidity to keep it lively. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Syrah. Drink now through 2014. 60 cases imported.
