Tasting Notes:
rated: March 1, 2005 , Wine Spectator
"92-94 points: A solid wine with lots of chewy tannins, but they are relatively round and refined. Full-bodied and long ... Almost 95-100."
rated: April 1, 2005 , Robert Parker
"92-94 points: The pure, precise, inky/ruby/purple-tinged 2004 offers up classic Cabernet aromas of sweet black currants intermixed with licorice, cigar tobacco, and smoky wood. Possessing crisp acidity, ripe tannin, and a medium to full-bodied, layered, textured feel, this impressive effort combines power with elegance. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020." Best 2007-2020

4 stars "Huge, black intense colour with a strikingly exotic intensity of fruit, really firm and grippy, yet overall smooth and velvety texture, great density and length, more power than finesse at the moment. Drink 2012-35. (18.5 points)" Best 2012-2035

"90-93 points Robert Parker: "The elegant, dense ruby/purple-tinged 2004 Cos d’Estournel offers classic aromas of licorice, smoke, creme de cassis, Asian spices, and a hint of incense. Medium-bodied, restrained, rich, and well-balanced, this spicy wine requires 2-3 years of bottle age. It should drink well for 15+ years." (06/06) 91-93 points Stephen Tanzer: "Bright medium ruby. Vibrant, musky aromas of crushed blackberry, espresso, black olive, leather and spices. Densely packed and sweet but offers excellent lift in the mouth. Flavors of very ripe, almost jammy red fruits, minerals and spices. A very broad, rich wine with terrific palate coverage. Finishes quite long, with substantial..." K&L's notes - More Cabernet than usual-even more than 2003. Mocha aromas mixed with smoke and spice. Cola nuances also. Great structure and power. Very long-tons of everything. Sounds like a broken record-one of the best of 2004."
