    "A sleeper of the vintage, the deep ruby/purple-tinged 2004 Prieure-Lichine is all about finesse and flavor intensity. Not a blockbuster, but rather a wine of sensual appeal, it offers superb aromatics of cherry liqueur, underbrush, cedar, and spring flowers. Silky and soft, with medium body, beautiful fruit, and a depth that builds incrementally, this consumer-friendly Margaux can be enjoyed over the next 12-15 years. This defines charm."
