In previous vintages this was a favorite, but the '04 vintage, while ripe and manly, seems a little commonplace by comparison. The nose is mostly a mixing of oak and heavy fruit scents, while the palate is your standard trio of black cherry, raspberry and chocolate. Finishes tight, with some creamy wood notes.
