2004 Wine and Port

2004 Wine Vintage Report

2004 Italian :

2004 Piedmont: Very promising with few extremes of weather and well balanced wines. 2004 Tuscany: Exceptionally good vintage, central Italy’s equivalent of the perfect growing season that France experienced in 2005.

2004 Bordeaux :

2004 Bordeaux: The 2004 wine vintage marked a return to a more classic Bordeaux vintage. The wines are more traditionally styled, and will make fine drinking for many cellars. The vintage seems a little under-rated compared with 2003 and the wines represent good value.

2004 Vintage Port :

2004 Port Vintage: The 2004 vintage was not generally declared, but some wonderful single quinta vintages were bottled. These 2004 Vintage Ports show intense deep purple-red colour, a factor that was strongly influenced by the August rains that softened the skins and allowed for better colour extraction. The nose is lifted and fresh, again thanks to the cooler August weather. The taste is rich, firm and with good acidity and fine peppery tannins. These wines are most attractive and will age extremely well.

*** 86 Points - Wine journal ***

"The 2004 Meyney has a simple, ripe nose of redcurrant, cranberry and a touch of cigar box. It seems to have more Merlot than other Saint Estephe wines with a nice touch of cassis towards the finish.
