More rich, layered and concentrated, and also showing the age-ability of the wines, the 2004 Cote Bonneville is from a cooler year which was described by Hugh as similar to 2010. Made from 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot that was aged in 100% new French oak, it is still incredibly youthful and fresh on both the nose and palate. Offering up big minerality, cedar box, spice, cherry and cassis aromas and flavors, it is a medium to full-bodied blend that has a light, fresh texture, almost no evolution and a classically constructed, focused finish. A joy to drink, it should continue to evolve for another decade or more. Drink now-2023+. (JD)
Lithe, supple, refined and focused, playing its mocha-accented blackberry and cherry fruit against silky tannins. The finish rolls on and on without losing its graceful sense of elegance. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. (HS)
(80% cabernet sauvignon, with 17% merlot and 3% cab franc) Medium-deep red. Meaty dark berries, black cherry, licorice and woodsmoke on the very ripe nose. Smooth, plump and gamey, with harmonious acidity framing the wine's sweet fruit. At once glyceral and shapely, with a fairly sophisticated texture. Not especially complex but finishes with sweet tannins and good length. (ST)
