TASTING NOTES:

Though less powerful than the 2003, the aromatically floral 2004 Merlot holds its own in a qualitative comparison. Its nose of roses, wild berries, and cherries leads to a medium to full-bodied, pure core of spicy black cherries. 

 - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 94 pts

There was no Pepper Bridge or Seven Hills Merlot in the mix in 2004, but this as good as any other Leonetti Merlot, which is to say as good as it gets, aided by the inclusion of Cold Creek vineyard fruit. Soft, lush and beautifully aromatic; it’s just lightly dusted with chocolate and hints of spicy herb. 

 - Wine Enthusiast, 92 pts

Plush, with gorgeous plum and berry aromas and flavors wrapped in a blanket of spicy oak and superfine tannins, persisting enticingly on the long finish. 

 - Wine Spectator, 91 pts

Medium red-ruby color. Sexy aromas of plum, cassis, red cherry, leather and nutty oak. Juicy, bright and sharply delineated, with excellent lift to the fruit-driven flavors of cherry, raspberry and currant. Finishes sweet and long, with youthfully firm tannins and noteworthy verve. Chris Figgins noted that there are some new Merlot sources in this wine, to make up for crop lost to the frost in 2004.
