One of the smallest crops to be included...only 32% of the production made it into the 2003...sweet black currant, blueberry, graphite, licorice and toasty vanillin aromas...tannins are still noticeable...but...well-integrated.
...wonderful balance of full, silky tannins and creamy ripeness... Long, fleshy finish that remains cool and lively right to the end.
Knockout nose offers blackberry, currant, plum, cedar, minerals and dark chocolate. Fresh, succulent and quite firm in the mouth, with brisk acids and a minty nuance lifting the dark berry and chocolate flavors.
...Complex, spicy nose. Sweet, rich and velvety – not that unlike 2003 bordeaux -...Great lift. Quite polished...
85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, and 7% Petit Verdot
