I tried the '05 first, really liked it so I thought I would try the '04, being a bit older, the same price, (and the '05 was out of stock at the time). Got two bottles here, and not sorry I did, this is a nice wine, but, for a dollar more, the 05 is the one to get, it is richer tasting, more oak and more berry flavors, I recommend if you are gonna get one that is the one to buy at a similar price.
