Tasting Note Wine Spectator 97/100 - Vintage 2004 - Tasted: 15-Dec-2007
Complex, fresh aromas of concentrated blackberry, grilled meat and chocolate. Full-bodied and chewy, with caressing tannins and a long, long finish. A brick house and beautifully decorated. Powerful. Best after 2012

Wine Advocate (eRobert Parker by Neal Martin) 95/100 - Vintage 2004 - When to drink: 2009 to 2024 - Tasted: 31-Oct-2007
The 2004 Costa Russi is irresistibly sexy and opulent. As is typically the case, the wine is more overtly fruit-driven, with a round, supple personality. Sweet, long and richly-textured, it is just plain awesome in its display of generous, vibrant fruit, tar, smoke, minerals and herbs. It is the finest Costa Russi yet. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2024.

Stephen Tanzer 94/100 - Vintage 2004

It has elegant, fruity character and velvety from the early years of age. Intriguing fragrance and great class with flavors well-blended. Full body with great concentration and purity; a powerful wine with a deep rich tannic structure and great persistence. Excellent ability to ripen until more than 30 years for the bottles of great vintages.
