Tonight, I got home to find Jean recovering from a bad day with a glass of:

2004 Navarro Pinot Noir "L'Ancienne"
nose: dark fruit, slight oak
palate: soft entry, dark fruit, a hint of oak, good acidity

This wine definitely showed signs of the vintage, as it was noticeably
darker and more extracted than the typical Navarro Pinot. Still
enjoyable, if less food-friendly, it managed to turn Jean's day around.
