Wine Spectator 89 points - The roast plum, dried cherry, date and treacle notes are set with light tannins and well-meshed acidity in this balanced red. Accents of ground anise and espresso creme show on the finish. Drink now through 2019. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 2,500 cases made.-AN

Wine Enthusiast 90 points - No doubt: this is a seductive, modern wine with opulent oak shadings that translate into chocolate fudge, spice and creme brulee. Beyond the big oak tones are cherry fruit and Indian spice and the wine renders a very soft and round impression in the mouth.
Wine Advocate 94 points - Another monumental achievement, the 2005 Amarone della Valpolicella Bosan shows just a glimmer of its age with aromas of tobacco and root beer that segue to dark fruit and spice. The Bosan vineyard is planted to 80% Corvina and 20% Rondinella with the Pergola training system on clay and chalky-alluvial soils. It sits tight on the palate with thick extraction and a touch of sweetness followed by savory spice. Polished tannins stand at the back. Bosan can be consumed now, or you could wait ten years or more. Drink 2014-2025. (Oct 2013)
