There’s something a touch funky on the nose here with a very smoky and minerally profile that recalls bacon fat and ashes but there’s also plenty of sweet fruit and even a hint of apricot glaze. In the mouth this is elegant and very refined with big, black cherry fruit that’s tight and wound up. There are lovely, nuanced notes of sandalwood, dried citrus rinds and herbs in the mouth but the tannins really clamp down on the finish. Nonetheless the core of fruit is just so pretty, faceted, and ripe that this is certain to benefit from several years aging. 94pts

Deep ruby color. Nose is full of blackberry and raisin. Rich and super smooth on the palate. Flavors run from jammy dark berries to raisins and prune followed by a soft oak with chocolate on the finish.

Had a glass at a Thai restaurant, and it was full of litchi and peach aromas. On the palate I tasted tangerine, then a lovely peach and meyer lemon finish. I have no idea what this wine costs in the real world, but it was a great pairing with my sizzling Thai chicken.

Nice depth in the midpalate to the leather, herbs, and plum fruit. Silky texture.

Decanted 2 hours. Bright raspberry nose and flavors. A touch of minerality and earth on the palate as well, with light acidity, and well-integrated tannins. Outstanding - 93 points.

More restrained than the Shotfire Shiraz, this delivers powerful flavor but is smooth and controlled.

Wonderfully, rich and smooth with a softness that wasn't apparent two years ago. Nice round, smooth tannins without bite....and lots of nice earth. A beautiful California Cab.

Wine Tasting NotesCrafted from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot, with continually unfolding layers of complexity. The wine is rich in the nose with red berry-cherry fruit and enticing cedar cigar box aromas. The hillside fruit adds spice and dusty characteristics. The palate is lush and full, the use of oak is masterfully integrated so as to provide perfect spice without an overshadowing influence.

The 2004 Cinq Cepages displays an elegant, Bordeaux-like style offering aromas of cedar, tobacco leaf, black currants, cherries, and spice box. Medium to full-bodied with soft, silky tannins, and a moderately long finish, it should drink well for 7-8... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Subtle, with a deceptively easy entry, offering lithe texture and cherry, plum and a distinct stony note that pick up steam and then hang on beautifully as the finish sails on and on, hinting late at sassafras.

Austere, but rich and complex, with currant, chocolate and blackberry flavors that are tightly wound, finishing with a good push of fruit flavors and firm tannins. Best from 2004 through 2012.

This one has layers and layers of gorgeous plum, blueberry and currant flavors on a satiny, plush frame, shaded with lovely exotic mushroom notes as the finish rolls on and on. Beautifully put together and pointed toward longevity, expect this to las... Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from Oregon in USA. 2004 Beaux Freres Pinot Noir The Upper Terrace 750ml

Take our word for it, this wine will not disappoint. Impressive tannins and colossal black fruit, yet forward with a velvety moughfeel to leave you with a never-ending finish.
