International Wine CellarBright medium ruby. Cassis and coffee torrefaction on the nose; a bit more medicinal and brooding than the 2003. Fat, sweet and primary but with good lift for the vintage. The medicinal character carries through onto the finish, which features firm tannins and noteworthy structure. Not noticeably better than the very good 2003 but this will almost certainly require a bit of bottle aging.
