had this a couple times & find the '04 seems to be very new world-esque. ripe black fruit: cherry, currant and raspberry, as well as an aroma I'll unabashedly call vanilla Dutch masters. Light w/ a creamy, round palate, which is surprisingly more Rioja-like than the nose.

17/20 (92/100) Цвет рубиновый, умеренно полный. Сначала животинка и кожа, затем спелая сладкая вишня, потом кожа, чуть сладковато, ваниль, замша. Тело умеренно плотное, танины умеренные, чуть суховатые, не вполне готовые. Вкус полный, ягоды, кожа. Довольно высокая кислотность. Послевкусие суховатое, долгое.

This 04 was corked, thus depriving us of a side-by-side comparison with the 05.

Aromas of licorice, currant, fig, and oak on the nose carry through to the palate. A touch of brett (leather-like) pops on the finish with the medium-heavy tannins. Drink now over the next 3 years before the brett evolves more.

Young and a bit tannic. But opened in the glass.
