So I figured I’d try the 2004 WS RRV tonight after having the 03 last night…very dark ruby color (deeper than that of the 03). Nose seems a lot more primary than that of the 03 and much fruitier. I miss some of the earth tones I got from the 03. On the palate, the wine seems a little leaner and drier than the 03 version, and despite the massively fruity nose, the body of the wine is extremely elegant and does not have the same stuffing as the 03. Finishes very, very well. Overall, I would say that the 04 has a little more acidity and elegance than the 03 while showing more primary, still (being a year younger). Will be interesting to follow, but this wine is worth every penny one pays on the mailing list.
