Le Dix 2004 has a deep garnet color, almost black. The powerful nose develops aromas of ripe black fruit and wild cherries
complemented by those of wax, cedar, laurel and licorice. The oak is pleasantly integrated with the fruit. This adds to the wine
pleasant aromas of vanilla, grilled hazelnut, tobacco and cinnamon.
The concentration is impressive but the wine remains very
well balanced and elegant, fresh and long, with strong but well coated tannins. It is very long in the mouth finishing with a
powerful taste of cherry (kirsch) tempered by the light bitterness of walnut peel, typical of great Cabernets.
This outstanding wine
is already very expressive. It is still young but will gain even more complexity and softness in time. To drink in 2008 and later.
Great potential for aging.
