I've always like this wine, but the 2004 is something else. Bursting with flavour and a good lick of acid. Garnacha with 15% Syrah thats aged in french and american oak for 10 months. Its very reasonably priced for what it is too.
This wine jumps out of the bottle with a great nose of blackberry and dark cherry, a bit of smoke, orange blossom and woody herbs. A tonne of tart fruits: blackberry, dark cherry and plum. Add to this a mix of minerals, earth and some sage. Tannins don't stand out at the moment, well integrated and balanced. Don't worry about cellaring, you could of course, but buy a few to drink now. 90 Pts.
