International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 126

($99-$150) Good medium ruby. Explosive nose of black raspberry, coffee and leather. Hugely rich, dense and sweet, with deep flavors of currant, plum and chocolate complicated by underlying minerality. Wonderfully dense and full on the back end, with broad tannins and palate-staining length. Today, the 2005 comes off as dry by comparison. A standout of the vintage, and likely to be long-lived in the context of the year.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 164

One cannot admire enough proprietor Anthony Barton and his classic, potentially long-lived wines that are models of power, elegance, and longevity - in short, these wines symbolize what makes Bordeaux so world-renowned! Probably capable of rivaling the 2000, the uncompromisingly made, formidably powerful, masculine, and highly extracted 2003 has an inky purple color to the rim, a big, deep personality with a tight but promising nose of forest floor, creme de cassis, smoke, charcoal, licorice, and perhaps even truffle. It is layered, rich, and set for an exceptionally long life, but don't expect to get a lot of joy even in this somewhat overtly styled vintage for at least another 7-8 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Intense blackberry and cherry, with hints of currant. Toasted oak and sweet tobacco too. Roses and other flowers, such as lilacs. Full-bodied, with masses of tannins yet incredibly long and seductive. 18,330 cases made.

Excellent wine almost as soon as opened. Got better over the course of an hour. I am sure it will get better, but given where it is now, going to be hard to wait

Dnadoc00 Trust Rating: 96 Tasted On: 08/09/2013

The wine is a clear, medium ruby color and has lightly pigmented medium legs. The wine is clean with medium intensity aromas of black fruit (blackberry and plum). There are light aromas of cedar and graphite. The palate is dry with medium + acidity and medium + drying tannins. There is medium alcohol and medium -body and flavor intensity. The black fruit flavours are quite overwhelmed by the acid/tannins. The finish is mediium. The wine is not yet ready for drinking due to its high tannin which may or may not fade before the fruit. The wine is acceptable.
