Winemaker's Notes

"A wine that combines big solid, but fresh fruit, with big flavors of new wood. It is solid, black and powerful."
Wine Enthusiast
93-95 points

"Good ruby-red. Currant, black raspberry, cocoa powder and graphite on the nose. Silky on entry, then impressively sweet in the middle palate, with classic Pauillac flavors of currant, chocolate and graphite dominating. This boasts the sharp focus of the vintage's best examples but can't quite match the 2006 for consistent ripeness and mid-palate depth. Tannins are quite firm and in need of six or seven years of patience."
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
91(+) points

"An impressively-endowed, dense, modern-styled St.-Emilion, the deep ruby/purple-colored 2004 boasts a sweet nose of charcoal, black currants, grilled herbs, and spicy barrique. With excellent fruit, outstanding potential, medium to full body, beautiful purity, and a nicely-framed, sweetly tannic finish, it should be at its finest between 2008-2015."
Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
89-91 points
