"The 2005 Laborum Syrah is dark ruby-colored with a perfume of spice box, mineral, game, and blueberry, Supple and smoothly-textured, the wine has plenty of rich fruit, savory flavors, excellent concentration, and 2-3 years of aging potential. Drink it from 2011 to 2020." -Rated 91, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
