    Good full ruby-red. Crunchy cassis, bitter chocolate, violet, black olive and a note of leather on the nose. Quite juicy if a bit firm-edged, with musky black cherry, blackberry, violet and licorice flavors complicated by an enticing whiff of game. Offers a chewy texture but the faint herbal notes suggest very good but not outstanding ripeness. But then this is exactly the kind of fresh 2004 that should enjoy a positive evolution in barrel.
