88 points "Good, as described in reviews but still a little more fruity than I like. Did not feel there were enough tannins to fully hold up the wine."

"Inky violet. Ripe red and dark berry aromas are deepened by licorice and espresso. Cherry and dark berry flavors show a youthfully tannic character, with a slowly emerging note of floral pastille adding complexity. Less opulent than the Bin 128 but deeper and more concentrated, with powerful creme de cassis and plum compote notes on the long, juicy finish. ~Josh Raynolds - International Wine Cellar"

"Colour - A deepened crimson with a purple core. -- Nose - The nose is complex and beguiling, with notes of demi-glace and roasting pan juices, beneath scents of pipe tobacco, vanilla and pencil shavings oak - much more than just a simple varietal offering. -- Palate - The palate is full-bodied, refined and taut showing dark, black conserve fruit flavours with Satsuma plum notes to the fore. Further liqueur chocolate and spice flavours are impregnated by overt, chewy and ripe tannins. To sum up, the integrated fruit, oak and acid loudly proclaim harmony and balance. The 2004 vintage conditions were first class and rank alongside any recent exemplary vintage. This, the 2004 vintage is a real Bin 28, showing polish, poise and pedigree. By all means, drink whenever, but please save some for the cellar, and the 2010s!"
