Dense ruby/purple-colored with an exquisite perfume of black raspberries, kirsch, ground pepper, and incense, this full-bodied, powerful, concentrated wine reveals fabulous purity as well as a finish that lasts over 45 seconds.
Berry Bros & Rudd review: Their best red since 1998, this is a solid, brooding Chateauneuf dominated by
ripe, savoury tannins and notes of tapenade and black fruit. Drink 2012-2022.

International Wine Cellar(2004 Vintage) Medium red. Spicy, focused red berry aroma. Brisk strawberry and raspberry flavors are complicated by tangy mineral and pepper notes. Finishes bright and racy, with a zesty redcurrant note and a suggestion of lavender.
