Bodegas Primicia Rioja Reserva 2004

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

Vintage: 2004
Type: Rioja Reserva
Country: Spain

A lovely Rioja from a great year. A lovely deep purple colour that one expects from a Tempranillo with hints of oak and full flavours of blackberry and a bit of cassis

Aliança Douro Foral – Grande Escolha 2004

Sunday, December 5th, 2010

Vintage: 2004
Type: Red Blend
Country: Portugal – Douro

I quite like the table wines that come from the Douro region of Portugal. They tend to be great value for money and taste superb. This one is no exception. The nose is full of deep red fruits, the colour is almost black and the flavours are berries, cherries, plums, hints of cinnamon and cassis.

Duszi Tamas Szekszárd 2004

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

Vintage: 2004
Type: Cabernet Franc
Country: Hungary – Szekszárd

We picked up this wine in Hungary during a wine festival in Budapest.  It has a very strong flavour, as most straight Cabernet Francs do, with quite a bit of tannin to sift through to start.  Once it has breathed for a while, great flavours of berries and earth start to flow through and the wine mellows out with a nice relaxing finish.  Quite nice, but stay away if you don’t like your Franc!

Mercier Vintage Champagne 2004

Friday, August 20th, 2010

Vintage: 2004
Type: Champagne
Country: France – Epernay

We had this champagne one evening to celebrate a special occasion. Boy were we not disappointed. This champagne has great citrus tones, a slightly malty vintage flavour and smooth uniform bubbles. Certainly worth giving a try and I recommend it, if you can find it outside of France!

2004 Valiano Chianti Classico Il Poggio

Monday, April 5th, 2010

Vintage: 2004
Type: Sangiovese Blend
Country: Italy – Tuscany

This Chianti is quite nice. Better than most Chiantis that you can find outside of Italy (they tend to keep the good stuff) it is light and refreshing with a great nose and flavours.

Cosme Palacio y Hermanos

Vintage: 2004
Type: Rioja
Country: Spain

This Rioja is with smooth red fruit flavours and notes of vanilla and spice. Very nice to drink and recommended.

Ricossa – Barolo

Saturday, January 2nd, 2010

Vintage: 2004
Type: Barolo
Country: Italy

If you’ve ever had a Barolo before, you will know that this is a full bodied wine that goes great with meat. The Ricossa Barolo is no different with a big bold flavour with plummy aromas.

Michel Lenique – Grand Cru 2004

Sunday, December 13th, 2009

Vintage: 2004
Type: Vintage Champagne – Grand Cru
Country: France

This vintage champagne is absolutely outstanding. Everything that you come to expect from Michel Lenique but with that vintage taste and finish. excellent bubbles and a great flavour. Not to be had every day though, save this bottle for a special occasion!

Chateau Rousselle – 2004

Sunday, August 30th, 2009

Vintage: 2004
Type: Bordeaux
Country: France

I found the 2004 to be quite tasty; very good value for money. Well aged and ready to drink.

Summerhill – Cabernet Franc

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

Vintage: 2004
Type: Cabernet Franc
Country: Canada – Okanagan

This wine was picked up in our March trip to the Okanagan Valley. Summerhill is one of the better know vineyards in the area and this Cabernet Franc is a good representation of their wine. Very good flavours of berry and blackcurrent with some woody bouquet and finish. Recommended.
