(From 2004 Vintage) The 2004 is a very seductive wine, displaying aromas of cassis, black cherries, pomegranite and cedary oak. Medium bodied and boasting soft ripe tannins.
"Big, juicy wine. Intensely grapey. Gushing with fruit. Full-bodied and chewy. Smoky and gamy. Armailhac gets better and better."

Little old for my liking. Snail tasting and not my favorite
