Wine Critic Reviews:

This beautiful, stunningly dense purple-colored effort (includes about 90% Cabernet Sauvignon) offers up precise notes of graphite, black cherries, cassis, scorched earth, and minerals. Medium to full-bodied with fabulous fruit, impressive richness, refreshing acidity, and sweet tannin... Robert Parker

Sokolin 2004 Lafite Rothschild Tasting Notes:

Imagine your taste buds surfing on an immense wave of pure, red-colored, liquid magic. This is what tasting the 2004 Lafite Rothschild feels like. At any moment, you can dive right into that endless ocean of extreme depth and a soft, velvety texture that will caress your whole body while you're enjoying each second of that gentle touch.

Lafite Rothschild belongs to the Premier Grand Cru wines for a reason. It's made of the finest Bordeaux grape varieties - Cabernet Sauvignon, which takes up almost the full volume of this bottle, and contributes to the wine being so rich, full-bodied and deliciously tannic. Not to mention the longevity of these bottles - this particular vintage will undoubtedly last for more than two decades from now. It's just reached its peak, but thanks to its amazing potential, it promises to stay there for at least twenty years.

The bouquet this Lafite offers is simply a fairy tale. In multiple layers, it displays magnificent aromas of cassis, black cherries, some graphite, earthy and minerally tones, and also some blackberries and cedar. Quite spectacular, given the wide range of scents one can clearly distinct.

Ripe, well-integrated tannins will greet your palate with the softest texture you've ever had a chance to experience. Subtle, but powerful at the same time, the wine will slowly conquer you with the refreshing balance of just the right amount of acidity and sweet flavors of currants and cedar.
