There comes a point, when one should conclude that they don't like the style of a particular winery, and move on. There is no point in forcing the issue.

The 2004 RSR is drinking very well BUT it is a fully mature red and I wouldn't store it any longer if I had some more in my cellar ..... But I wouldn't hold it longer. I drink wine, at least partly, to taste FRUIT.

The total volume of that wine couldn't have been more than a single bottling day, so I doubt bottle variation would be a factor, more likely shipping or storage.

Personally I don't care much for the phrase "drink up"because to my mind it could apply equally to a wine that just passed it's peak 6 months ago but is still itself OR is drinking like a fine old wine but has lost some of it's unique identity (all old reds taste alike at some point) or is just a step shy of the vinegar reclamation barrel...
Your previous post about the 2006 Recanati CF Reserve and your last one have contradictory comments re your ownership of another bottle of the 2006 CF Res among your stock. Do you (or don't you) have another bottle stored under the exact same conditions?
