Another sleeper of the vintage for this property that has been doing impressive work over recent vintages, the 2004 (a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot) displays a dark ruby/purple color along with classic aromas of cedar, creme de cassis, earth, spice, and wood. Medium to full-bodied, ripe, long, and impressively endowed, it should be at its peak between 2010-2022.
A blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Merlot, the darkly-colored, dry 2004 reveals a certain restraint and backwardness as well as an austere character. It will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age, and should evolve for 15 years.
Solid and grapey, with a very good core of fruit and chewy tannins. Medium- to full-bodied. Mineral and berry character. A bit angular. Almost 89-91
A bit broader than stablemate Carruades on the nose but not very giving. A bit stodgy. Quite inky and impenetrable. A low key, stolid vintage for Duhart rather than the dramatic success of some recent years - quite fine tannins and fruit pushed to maximum ripeness. Not especially expressive. Very well mannered, with quite a bit of acidity but just a bit dull at the moment. Drink 2015-28.
