International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 126

($230) Deep ruby-red. Exotic aromas of black raspberry, mocha and caramel. Sweet, lush flavors of cherry and menthol. Wonderfully pliant and fleshy for a 2003. Finishes firmly tannic and long, with compelling sweetness.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 207

The 2003 Melbury comes from a slopeside site on the northern side of Lake Hennessey, opposite the Rutherford valley floor. Winemaker Bob Levy compares the 2003 to the 2006 because of the wet winter and spring and the summer's heat spikes. A brilliant effort from sedimentary soil with rocks over compacted clay, it is a gorgeous wine offering raspberry, black currant, spring flower and blueberry characteristics along with a dense purple color, a full-bodied, multilayered mouthfeel and sweet tannin. This stunningly rich hillside Cabernet Sauvignon should reach full maturity in 4-5 years and keep for 15-20 years thereafter.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Rich and concentrated, with tiers of currant, blackberry and black cherry that run deep and pure, gaining momentum midpalate and ending with a strong, intense, focused finish. Shows a trace of heat, but delivers lots of enticing flavors. 700 cases made.

Decanted for 2.5 hours. Tons of Coffee and Licorice. Long very well rounded finish. Smooth tannins. Well balanced wine. Some hints of blueberry.
