Deep crimson in color. Very smoky, round, layered fruit. Stylish, with a big chocolate cherry and nut character to the fruit along with some date and fig elements. Very classy and distinguished – a lovely
example of the best of 2004.
"Good deep red. Superripe, slightly decadent aromas of red cherry, leather and underbrush. Plush, fat and large-scaled; a full-blown expression of soil, with notes of smoke and game. This boasts extraordinary sweetness for the vintage, remaining just this side of over the top. Just a hint of nut skin on the finish. Very sexy wine."
