Took a chance on this with a great friend visiting from out of town. This was absolutely thrilling. Textbook, deep Bordeaux nose and very dark color. For a 2004, this was "thick" and just amazing to drink with steak. Tannins well integrated into the full bodied wine with a beautiful nose. Kicking myself I didn't buy more of this. Plenty of life left in the wine so no rush at all.

Still young but already giving a lot of pleasure now. Classic and traditional as far as balance and roundness are concerned, not too woody, very fine wine.

Beautiful wine. Elegant, quality. Restrained fruits but yet ripe and giving. Cherries, berries, herbs, balanced tannins and acidity. Will reward patient drinkers... cellar for another 10 years before trying again (if you can wait that long)

Still massive tannins which just won't soften. However, this has a huge potential with good fruits, good level of acidity and multi-layer structure makes this a potential future stunner with maybe 4-5 additional years of cellaring.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
