This is the most open-knit and evolved of all these 2004s. Full-bodied with fabulously concentrated chocolaty, espresso, black currant and blackberry fruit notes, it is fragrant, silky smooth, broad, supple and altogether captivating. This is a beauty to drink over the next 10-15 years. - Robert Parker

Good red-ruby. Plum mocha and chocolate on the nose. Lush and seamless on the palate with a sappy liqueur-like raspberry flavor complicated by leather and smoke.

Lush and seamless on the palate with a sappy liqueur-like raspberry flavor complicated by leather and smoke. There's something Bordeaux-like about this broad but lively wine. Perhaps ultimately less suave than the young 2005 but today this is even longer.

Rich almost thick and syrupy with loamy savory currant and black olive flavors that are compact and focused all presented in a supple graceful style. Finishes long and persistent. Best from 2009 through 2013. 1481 cases... Rich almost thick and syrupy with loamy savory currant and black olive flavors that are compact and focused all presented in a supple graceful style.
