Pnp. Wine was slightly over the hill and fruit was close to nonexistent. The palate was slightly flat, thin and watery. The only slightly redeeming part was that the nose had some cedar, oaky, musky old wine aroma if you like that sort of thing. Definetly still drinkable but not enjoyable.
Alcohol, smoky and pungent nose leads me to make a guess of 2003 vintages - I was so wrong. Herbs, dry raisin black fruits, soy sauce, spice burnt rubber aroma followed by palate that consist of coffee, wood spice, red fruits with powdery and firm tannins. Well integrated and with a medium finish that display coffee-like bitterness and savoury character. Suprising quality for a 04 cotes du rhone.
