ruby raspberry. Rounded with play doh and soft blue fruit. Supple and approachable.

Castor bean, tar, pine. Still a bit shy and tannic. Years to go, but plenty fun after 24 hours aeration.

Deep tawny color, bright and barely opaque. Feminine, fragrant nose with notes of ripe black cherry, rose petals, fresh wet soil, red cedar and a little tar. Very impactful in the mouth with lots of chewy fruit matched with a nice acidity back bone. Medium plus finish. Still mostly primary and needs age to develop more interesting secondary flavors.

While some producers excelled in this hot vintage, this wine did not.

Similar oak treatment at 60-70% new, yet time has been good to this wine. The oak is there but well integrated. Longer than the Serraboella, and more silky.

04's are still tight as hell. Will this vintage ever unwind? Starting to have my doubts
