2004 Château Tirecul la Gravière "Cuvée Chateau" Monbazillac (500ml) (Elsewhere $30)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tirecul’s sweet and decadent 2004 Cuvee Chateau exhibits apricot/peach marmalade, creme brulee and maple syrup aromas and flavors in a full-bodied, unctuous, but well-balanced, pure style. This dessert wine is already remarkably evolved, and should drink well for another 10-15 years - good luck deferring your gratification! As always, this wine is a sensational value. (RP)" (06/2014) K&L Notes: Just a little south of Sauternes lies the region of Monbazillac not far from the town of Bergerac. Similar in fashion ...

2004 Domaine Tortochot Chambertin Grand Cru

94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here there is also noticeable if not dominant wood spice that frames the admirably elegant, restrained and very pure, cool and almost airy red berry fruit and intense earth notes that grandly introduce the big-bodied, powerful and mineral-driven flavors that possess strikingly good definition and punch on the austere and stunningly long finish. This too is a bit oaky at present but there is really impressive underlying material. Bravo. " (01/2008) K&L Notes: Burghound's producer note: "For readers who may be unfami ...

2004 Krug Brut Champagne

97 points James Suckling: "This is an extremely fresh edition and remains in a restrained mode with an intense serve of Chardonnay's lemon citrus dominating the nose alongside lime zest, bright florals, grassy elements, fresh dough, white stones and very subtle background spice. The palate has a svelte and elegant shape. Smoother than the 2002, it shares the same quality of precision but not the raging power of that vintage. The poise is unquestionable, the wine very reserved, with plenty of lemon-infused citrus flavors, hints of fresh cashew and a lot o ...

2004 Kopke Colheita Port

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "A great mouthful of sweet fruit, flavors of ripe figs and tannins are almost lost in this delicious wine. This is hardly a classic, long-term vintage, but it's almost ready to be a hugely enjoyable wine. For lovers of rich, almost sweet Zinfandel, go back to the original model with this wine.

2004 Hanzell Sonoma Valley Pinot Noir

95 points Wine Enthusiast: " Among California's First Growth Pinots, Hanzell's ‘04 is marked by a full-bodied, austere density that demands time in the cellar. It's a very dry, fairly tannic wine, rich in ripe crushed black cherry, red cherry candy, tobacco, cedar, and spicebox aromas and flavors that are impeccably balanced. Really defines the terroir of the estate, and should develop well. *Cellar Selection*" (02/2008) K&L Notes: Initial high-toned fruit aromas pass to darker fruits quickly and then to savory, complex characters, ending on a mineral ...

2004 d'Arenberg "The Dead Arm" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The renowned 2004 Shiraz The Dead Arm, fashioned from ancient head-pruned vines, is stunning. An inky/purple color is accompanied by a glorious perfume of creosote/melted road tar, blackberry and cassis liqueur, pepper, and spice. This deep, rich, full-bodied, tannic Shiraz should be drinkable in 2-3 years, and will last for two decades or more. It is the finest Dead Arm since the 2001.

The wine’s dense ruby/purple color is followed by a beautiful, Pauillac-like (think Pontet Canet or Mouton), ethereal perfume of creme de cassis, or as Michael Broadbent used to say, 'celestial black currants,' full body, a velvety texture, fine tannins, a multidimensional mouthfeel, and a terrific finish. ...

2004 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Tasted in October, 2007, the wine was mute, offering little aromatically except for teasing notes of blackberries and oak. That shyness extended to the taste, where strong, hard tannins provide an almost impenetrable coat of armor to what’s inside. But right down the middle of the palate is a deep, intensely powerful stream of perfectly ripened cassis that’s all the proof you need of ageability. This is a magnificently structured young wine, reminiscent of a fine young Pauillac. Best after 2012, and should have another decade ...

2004 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne

The mousse is worthy of its own chapter and the elegance is striking. Nice minerality and floral notes with citrus overtones. Slightly short now, but time will fill in the small gaps in the beginning of life.

2004 San Giusto a Rentennano "La Ricolma" Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Ricolma (100% Merlot) possesses stunning aromatics and layers of blackberry liqueur, minerals, chocolate and sweet toasted oak. Vibrant and shimmering on the palate, it shows plenty of Tuscan structure to support the fruit, with phenomenal length and ripe, sweet tannins to round out the finish.

2004 Bellevue-Mondotte, St-Emilion

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A spectacular garagiste effort from a five-acre, 45-year-old vineyard (90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon), the 2004 Bellevue Mondotte was fashioned from yields of 15 hectoliters per hectare. The result is an opaque purple-colored wine of provocative richness and intensity with an extraordinarily thick, juicy style, and unbridled amounts of creme de cassis, black cherry liqueur, a structured minerality, and sexy, toasty new oak. This full-bodied, powerful, extravagant, fascinating St.-Emilio ...
