I opened this bottle about an hour ago to give it some fresh air, and the first glass has a lovely deep, inky purple color that just begs to be imbibed. The nose is a wonderful combination of rich leather, cocoa powder and just a hint of ripe berries around the periphery. The taste is surprisingly fruit forward, with a burst of berries and cassis that effortlessly transitions to some dried herbs, smoke and lovely mineral notes midpalate. The finish is just wonderful, as rounded, lush mouthfeel and well developed tannins provide ample support for the long, exceptionally dry finish. Simply a lovely wine to enjoy on a late summer afternoon! See the full review on my blog here: http://allaloneonaplanetfullofpeople.blogspot.com/2013/09/2004-forgeron-cabernet-sauvignon.html
