Deep ruby. Intense scents of blackberry, cassis and candied violet, with a strong mineral accent. Bursting with peppery dark berry flavors complemented by candied floral notes and an espresso quality. Picks up a wild, resinous herb note on the back, finishing sweet and impressively long, with a lingering suggestion of bacon.
The floral, exotic 2004 Cote Rotie is one of the better examples I tasted in this vintage (the crop was gigantic). Its deep ruby color is followed by copious amounts of sweet raspberry fruit intermixed with pepper, herb, and toasty new oak notes. Drink it over the next 8-10 years.
A racy beam of black currant and boysenberry fruit, with cocoa, coffee and olive notes. Long, dark fruit- and sanguine-filled finish. Very impressive for the vintage. Drink now through 2013. 100 cases imported.
