Going through some of the 2004s that I have. Ah, ladybugs. Irony was that I have a few flying around the house for some reason. Very appropriate. Nice red color, soft red fruit and spice on the nose. Tastes of some red fruits, a touch of integrated wood, and some greenness. Good mouthfeel, enjoyable for what it is, tannins are soft without dryness. Ladybugs.

At 12 years this is very youthful, and almost suspended animation, unchanged since my last bottle. This drinks like 1st/2nd growth bordeaux from a warm vintage, but for 25% of the cost! Dark fruit, ripe, tobacco, wet earth, dusty tannins, perfect balance. Drink over the next 3-5 years...AM
