Red | Cabernet | United States | Napa Valley | 750ml
"The 2004 Axios is a very strong effort for this vintage, opulent, deep plum/garnet/ruby, with loads of chocolate, black currant, cedar wood and spice box notes. With sweet, supple tannins, a dense, full body, a voluptuous mouthfeel, and outstanding purity and length, this is a delicious, substantial, yet lush style of wine to drink over the next 10-15+ years." Wine Advocate (93 Points)

"Backward and powerful for the vintage, this blue/purple-colored 2004 exhibits classic creme de cassis, smoke, incense, and spring flower characteristics. Medium to full-bodied, dense, and excruciatingly tannic, this impressively endowed Pauillac is built for the long haul. However, patience will be required. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025+." Wine Advocate (90+ Points)
"Shows beautiful aromas of crushed berries and currant, with hints of mineral. Full-bodied, with lovely currant, licorice and mint. Long and caressing. Very refined and balanced. Another winner from Pontet-Canet. Best after 2011." Wine Spectator (93 Points)
Red | Proprietary Red | France | Cotes du Ventoux | 750ml
"The brilliant 2004 Nadal, primarily Grenache from old vines planted in 1936 mixed with a tiny amount of Mourvedre and some barrel-aged Syrah, has an inky purple color and a blockbuster nose of blackberries, raspberries, and kirsch intermixed with hints of toast, smoke, and pepper. The wine is medium to full-bodied, opulent, and superbly concentrated and layered. [...]" Wine Advocate (90)

Red | Tempranillo | Spain | Rioja | 750ml
Clean, bright dark-cherry red of medium depth with a pink rim. Notably expressive nose with spicy notes of coffee, chocolate, vanilla and cloves and fine wood aromas against a background of ripe dark fruit. It is a well-structured, balanced wine with a lively, enticing freshness that combines with polished tannins to fill the mouth with pleasurable sensations. Long aftertaste, marked by the subtlety of a brand whose traditional elegance, complexity and aromatic power are particularly enriched in this vintage.
An excellent wine to accompany charcoal-grilled meat, roasts, small game, medium-aged cheeses, Iberian cured sausages, etc.

"The 2004 Brut Cristal has put on quite a bit of weight since I first tasted it earlier this year. It is a powerful, structured Cristal layered with considerable fruit. Chardonnay seems to play the leading role in 2004, at least today. Cristal is often accessible young, but that is far from the case here. This is a serious, painfully young Cristal that will require considerable patience. Readers who are willing to spend some time with the wine today will find a super-impressive, complete Cristal. The 2004 Cristal is 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay." Wine Advocate (97 Points)

"The estate’s 2004 Brunello di Montalcino possesses gorgeous density and richness in its dark fruit, sweet toasted oak, minerals, licorice and spices. This is an especially generous, Brunello that shows terrific energy and balance in a soft, approachable style. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019." Wine Advocate (92 Points)
