2004 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore

SKU #1031295 98 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Silky, perfumed and polished, the 2004 Ornellaia is a fabulous example of the vintage. From magnum, the 2004 is exceptionally youthful and super-finessed, with expressive, floral aromatics and layers of finely-knit fruit. What else can I say? The 2004 is tremendous. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2017)

98 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a hopelessly gorgeous wine with so much energy, intensity, density and good cheer. The superb ensemble—Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot—delivers chocolate fudge, ripe cherry, rhubarb, cola, tobacco and cedar wood. It’s tight and supple, with seamless harmony and excellent succulence on the finish. But it’s that incredible intensity that truly sets this wine apart. *Cellar Selection* Inner quote mark (4/2008)

97 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dark ruby-purple in color, with complex aromas of dark chocolate, cola, vanilla, cedar and currant. Full-bodied yet ultra refined, with dense, seamless, caressing tannins. Everything is in the right proportion. Superb. *Ranked #7 in Wine Spectator Top 100 in 2007, Collectibles* (JS) Inner quote mark (10/2007)

96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is a really balanced and beautiful year with chocolate, currant and walnut character. Medium body and fine and silky tannins. Shows autumnal and light mushroom undertones. Just moving into its maturity. A warm yet fresh vintage. Ready to drink. Inner quote mark (11/2016)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2004 Ornellaia (magnum) has always been a beautiful wine, but stylistically it stands out quite a bit from other vintages of this era, something that is particularly evident in this tasting. The 2004 is perhaps the most delicate, feminine Ornellaia ever made. Silky tannins frame a perfumed core of ripe fruit all the way through to the sublime finish. The wine’s inner fragrance, sweetness and balance are all impeccable. The 2004 remains one of my all-time favorite Ornellaias, and it is firing on all cylinders on this night. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2010)
