Excellent 2005 Bordeaux

2005 Carignan Prima, Premières Côtes de Bordeaux ($29.99)

90 points Wine Spectator: "Black currant and violet notes on the nose, with a good dose of slightly charred oak, follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a long, vanilla-colored finish. There's lots of oak, but also lots of fruit. Needs time. This is very chewy. Best after 2011."
