2004 Château Falfas

Jill of Domaine 547 recommended this wine from the overlooked 2004 vintage, which set me back $17.99.

Nice aromas of cedar, cigarette smoke and dark berries rose from the glass. There was more of the same on the palate with predominately plum and black cherries fruit-wise, along with a hint of soy sauce. The aftertaste lingered.

Texture-wise, this wine was smooth and silky, even a bit leathery or waxy in feel. All of the components were nicely balanced

Very nice wine, unquestionably two thumbs up on this one!
