Potent aromas of chocolate and raspberry jam laced with baking spices make an enticing first impression, lavishly surrounded by floral notes of lavender and violet, and supported by earthy, mineral notes. The wine offers an elegant, seamless, full-bodied attack with loads of cocoa, blackberry and black cherry fruit. Malleable tannins fill the palate and give a well-proportioned shape to the wine. Structured in the style of a classic Bordeaux, this wine will age gracefully for 10 to 20 years. In In its youth, it will benefit from decanting.

2004 Vintage

The 2004 vintage stands out as memorable, with fruit that bears the imprint of an early spring, and a slow and steady ripening period that ended several weeks ahead of traditional harvest timelines. Warm, consistent summer weather was bracketed by an early spring bud break and several late summer hot spells, creating growing conditions that allowed for one of the earliest harvest periods in almost a decade, and an unusual opportunity for making outstanding wine.
