Earthy & Spicy
Excellent balance cassis bottle age gives it a satin texture
Very strong presentation. Full body. Tough to find a less than $20, that is better.
Smooth & Supple
Lamb, Cheese > Blue, Beef
Very rich, and yet smooth
Over rated by Parker. Hot and somewhat grainy. Should be velvety as a 2004. A $12 bottle at best.
