Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The 2005 Anura Reserve Merlot is a full bodied wine with nice aromas of integrated black currant, blackberry, toasted oak, smoke, coconut and vanilla. It is tannic (decant for longer than half hour), quite alcoholic and the finish is long and smooth, once it decants that is. It is definitely worth aging as it'll be at its best from 2015-2020 and can cellar for more than 10 years. My impression: BEAUTIFUL (when decanted), gets 91 pts after deducting a point for being too alcoholic - a recommended buy even though there aren't that many left. Tasted Nov/10.

Natalie's Review

Anura Reserve Merlot 2005, W.O., Coastal Region, South Africa: Gorgeous, complex and enticing aromas of Bordeaux-like cigar box, blackcurrant, cassis, and dark spices. Blends New World energy and fruit for an intoxicating combination. Full-bodied but supple and balanced. Superb effort! 157461 14.50% D 750 mL  $24.95 Score: 90/100. April 17, 2010  Full Review
