Two Saturdays ago I opened the Chateau Clinet 2004 for dinner. I was grilling hangar steaks outside, while my super chef wife was cooking green peas (from the local farm stand) in the Roman style, that is sauteed in butter and olive oil with onions and prosciutto.

I often hear that wine smells of this and that, and just as often think some of the smells are stretches of the imagination. Well it was amazing! Black currants just filled the glass with the sweetest most beautiful aromatics, so pretty that I felt compelled to write.

In the mouth the wine was intensely flavored of the cassis and the vanilla oak was just so well done that it complemented and intertwined with the mouth filling flavors that this beauty presented.
