David Guimaraens reports that the 2004 harvest came on quickly due to intense heat in September and the early-maturing properties in the firm's portfolio fared the best. The vintage produced a classic Vargellas compressed into scents of schist violets and esteva. This '04 has a lovely perfume and energy in the structure that drives it forward: It's tense almost electric a potent essence of schist that lasts with mouthstaining power excruciatingly dry. This is the most powerful wine we tasted from this vintage only hinting at its more delicate complexities that may emerge with time. It should begin to reach a drinking plateau in around 20 years.

Dark ruby in color. Inky. Shows crushed berry wet earth stem and mineral aromas. Full-bodied with medium sweetness and a long caressing finish. There's plenty going on here for a young vintage Port. Best after 2015. -JS

Soft perfumed wine with a rich full-bodied style that goes towards dry. At this stage the spirit is somewhat obvious but that is a sign of youth and the wine will develop power and strength over the next several years.
