Domaine Sainte-Anne Cotes du Rhone, 2004

Many Bordeaux wines seem to become sweeter as they age, and that's a good trait. Domaine Sainte-Anne Cotes du Rhone wines go in the opposite direction, becoming more savory as the initial bold fruitiness fades away. That, too, is a good trait, in my opinion.

Deep ruby. Raspberries, blueberries, aromatic herbs and flowers. A nose that enchants. Fruit acids and tannins are still strong on the palate. Somewhat Pinot-like. Brighter than the 2001 at this stage but not quite as complex.
