2004. In the spirit of drink it don't pay to store it. Cherry liqueur, tapenade, smoke, garrigue, grilled meat on nose. Dense (not heavy, relatively) plum fruit, mineral, anise, black olive on palate. Fairly good detail, relatively speaking. Certainly not as extravagant as 2003 , 2005, or 2007. Tannins resolving nicely. Could use a touch more acid. Quite good with daube of beef. Re-buy? Sure, if the price is right.
