Domaine Bertrand-berge Ancestral 2004

The Quarterback opened this bottle last night, which he bought from online wine store, the Wine Library. It was delicious. We finished it before dinner.

A Wine Advocate review from the Wine Library:
"Fitou is an odd appellation consisting of a seaside section and a detached, mountainous, geologically distinct backside whose southern tip abuts Vingrau in Roussillon. At this tip the Bertrands tend the roughly equal parts Grenache, Carignan and Syrah that inform their 2004 Fitou Cuvee Ancestrale. Smelling and tasting of juicy, ripe black raspberries scented with sage and scrub, and with a savory tartness of fresh berry right down to the seeds, this pure, elegant, and long if not especially complex wine is positively infectious in calling forth the next sip. Enjoy it over the next couple of years." --David Schildknecht
