International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 124

($200; a blend of merlot and cabernet franc) Bright ruby-red. Crystallized currant, licorice and menthol on the nose. Round and ripe but not thick or heavy. Supple but tangy flavors of bitter cherry, red licorice, herbs and spices. Expands nicely on the back half. At once creamy and juicy, with good breadth and fine tannins. Doesn't have quite the verve of the 2002 release, but I find this graceful and fresh.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 207

As an epicurean, I particularly love the label on the 2003. A certain shyness in the aromatic profile belies some exuberant, enticing, complex flavors in this medium to full-bodied, lush, layered wine. The bouquet offers up hints of coffee beans, black currants, cherries, kirsch liqueur and spice. The wine is medium to full-bodied, lushly textured and opulent in the mouth, with no hard edges. The style of this 2003 suggests it was drinkable upon release, but it is aging gracefully. While not the biggest of the 2003s, it is an elegant, mid-weight effort to enjoy over the next decade.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Dark color, with wonderful perfumed cassis, currant and black cherry fruit that's openly aromatic. On the palate, the flavors are rich and polished, with a plush, dense texture and a long, intricate finish that picks up nuances of cedary oak and fresh earth. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. 325 cases made.
