90 points "Pale gold. Smoky, rich and full on the nose, showing deep orange, pear and mineral scents. Lush, expansive and powerful, with ripe pear, apple and tangerine flavors and a musky, minerally nuance. Palate-staining and deep, with silky texture and excellent length. As usual, an Albarino star of the vintage."

91 points "The 2005 Lusco Albarino, a light gold-colored wine, offers an expressive perfume of slate, minerals, honeysuckle, pear, and apricot. There is good underlying acidity, a rich feel on the palate (perhaps from the lees contact given to the wine), and a long, dry, fruity finish."
