International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 136

($62) Bright ruby. Vibrant red berry and cherry aromas, with a complex array of fresh floral and garrigue qualities adding complexity. Nervy, sharply focused raspberry and bitter cherry flavors stain the palate and zesty acidity adds lift on the close. More energetic and finely etched than the 2005 today.

Very dark and dense. Quite severe. Very long term. Great liquorice notes – extremely ambitious. Hold for some time.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 163

There is only one cuvee of Chateauneuf du Pape in 2004, the Tradition, which is everything from the estate, a blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, and the rest Counoise and Cinsault. Remarkably, the Grenache comes from 80- to 100-year-old vines, the Syrah from 40-year-old vines. It is one of the vintage's superstars with the inky/purple-colored wine offering up floral, sweet cassis notes intermixed with raspberry and cherry. The wine is full-bodied, richly textured, with beautiful floral and black fruit notes on the palate, full body, fabulous texture, and a ripe, sweet, expansive finish with relatively noticeable tannin. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 20 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Molesworth

A great core of fig, blackberry and black currant fruit, with racy acidity and fine-grained tannins that are the hallmark of 2004, this shows flashes of graphite, spice and mineral on the long, precise finish. Big step up from the 2003. 1,665 cases made.
