"Potentially better than the 2003, the deep ruby/purple-tinged 2004 reveals abundant amounts of sweet black cherry fruit intermixed with cedar, spice box, and toasty oak. Dense and medium-bodied with beautiful elegance, purity, and texture, it should drink well for a decade."

Very earthy. Good with kalamata olives. Sad i can't find it anywhere anymore.
This one is wicked good! Beautiful dark color with a hint of brick red. From the first nose to the last swallow, it evolves with air to reveal its complex balance. The cedar box is evident but does not overpower. At the end, I was surprised to discover a hint of cloves.
