    December 14, 2021 - Dark red color. Cassis, cocoa, and cedar bouquet. Soft and forward, it has a medium fruit palate with hints of vanilla. Very middle of the road claret in all respects, with good but not exceptional richness and power. Very typical 2004 Bordeaux vintage style. Surprisingly soft for a St. Estephe.

    November 6, 2021 - This didn’t seem as light as the previous bottle. Definite right bank flavours but this had a fair bit of vitality and I’m a lot happier to let the other bottles sit - this isn’t really in the secondary window yet and it looks quite promising.

    August 4, 2021 - Not quite classic St. Estephe but pretty tasty for a cool vintage. Perfect cork. Decanted for almost 2 hours. Dark red in color, no orange or brown tinge. A bit of barnyard funk nose early but blows off to reveal berry and a bit of a medicinal aroma. Blackberry, cherry, a bit of green pepper, pencil shavings and saddle leather on the palate. Very earthy, full bodied finish.

    May 28, 2021 - From 75cl, perfect cork, decanted 90 minutes. Textbook St. Estèphe pencil-shavings and cedar aromatics; fine cool-year cassis entry; smoother and more refined on the thin-bodied entry than expected given the brickish tannins of some other 2004s tasted recently; hints of green capsicum on the mid-palate, normally a turn-off for me, but this is well-balanced. Delicious, palate-cleansing claret without complexity or pretentions, just perfect for old world, old school fans (like me) now and for several years to come. 90P

    May 8, 2021 - I’ve had many good bottles of 2004 Bordeaux from other producers. This is not one of those however. My third bottle of 6. Consistently average. I thought maybe it needed patience but 3-4 hours of air do nothing for this wine. The first taste on opening held some promise of typical Bordeaux nose which quickly faded. I recommend drinking it on opening. Several hours later I thought I tasted some coconut on the finish. The wine has no backbone, persistence or finesse. Disappointing.
