Domaine Rabasse-Charavin Cairanne, 2004

This wine was shining when I first bought it two or three years ago on WineBid. Now it's losing some of its charm but still displays the old vine character that is a hallmark of this estate.

Color a bit faded but still deep. Dried fruits and flowers. Reticent at first but bouquet eventually begins to open. Cherries and red berries. Has retained plenty of intensity and old vine power. This is my last bottle, and I didn't want to keep it any longer, but I will miss it.
