The 2005 Reserve has aromas of wild raspberry, Bing cherry and caramelized orange that evolve with toasted hazelnut and crème brulee. The palate is layered with flavors of raspberry, guava, pineapple, cocoa and sweet spice. Crisp on entry, with a slight minerality, the texture is smooth and velvety. The wine has a balanced acidity and long finish that lingers on the palate.
97 points, Connoisseurs' Guide (Nov. 12): "...very special J. Schram bottlings inevitably make their ways to the head of the class every year, and this newest effort is nothing less than an absolute tour de force..."
95 points, Wine Enthusiast (Dec. 12): "...its richness is already apparent: it shows complex toast, leesy yeast, creme brulee, lemondrop sour candy and ripe pear flavors..."
92 points, Wine Spectator (Dec. 31, 2012): " Bold and opulent, yet balanced with a core of crisp and minerally fruit. Aromas of lemon tart and almond brioche open to rich flavors of apple, cinnamon and candied ginger."
Drink now or hold 20-30 years.
