The outstanding clone of the famed Chateauneuf du Pape Beaucastel the 2004 Esprit de Beaucastel is a combination of 50% Mourvedre 27% Syrah 16% Grenache and 7% Counoise. There are 3500 cases of this beauty which exhibits peppery earthy gamy meaty characteristics intermixed with black cherry cassis and new saddle leather. Dense rich spicy and exuberant impressively made as well as well-balanced it can be drunk over the next decade.

Purple in the core fading slightly to a pinker rim. Plum tomato black truffle and a touch of leather are surrounded by bright candied violets spicy cumin and a hint of cedar. Rich and smooth on the front of the palate with nice balance through to the finish. Good structure and ripe tannins support this supple lush and rich wine. The flavors mimic the aromas nicely with a spicy lingering dark cherry finish.<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" id="viddler" height="370" width="437"><param name="movie" value="http://www.viddler.com/player/896b618b/"><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"><embed src="http://www.viddler.com/player/896b618b/" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" name="viddler" height="370" width="437"></object>
