(2004 Vintage) These same characters are also evident on the palate and prevail with a smooth glycerol impact, following through to the mid palate with fruity tannin. The structure has an accent on fine structure and gritty long fruit tannin. After time in bottle the d’Arenberg’s Laughing Magpie’s flavors should intensify. The restrained tannin and acidity will produce a seamless velvety rolling length with age.

Ken's Wine Guide(2004 Vintage) This dark purple wine has a very expressive fruit bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine was very balanced and had good plum and blackberry flavors. The finish was extended and dry. Enjoy...
