(2004 Vintage) "D'Aiguilhe's impressively made 2004 offers a deep ruby/purple color as well as notes of creosote, creme de cassis, smoke, forest floor, and incense. Deep, layered, and moderately tannic, with crisp acidity, it will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age, and should last for a decade." Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate Barrel Sample: 87 - 89 Points
