"The 2004 Mt. Jefferson is showing a light garnet color. It is precocious, especially for Mt. Jefferson, which typically takes a few months to come around. It has rich aromas of ripe raspberries and cassis. The wine has a rich mouth-feel with loads of red fruits that include strawberry, raspberry and cherries. It is lively, persistent on the finish, and has a youthful complexity that will certainly develop over time."
