International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 126

($110; includes 4% cab franc) Ruby-red. Complex aromas of currant, plum, leather, tobacco, cedar and menthol, along with a faint dusty note. Then supple, rich and layered, with a very smooth texture. Not yet as sweet as the 2004 but plenty full in the mouth and more suave. Finishes with serious tongue-coating tannins that call for at least five or six years of cellaring.

Still very purple. Some floral notes on the nose ? extremely youthful! Rather similar to 2002 ? though with more acidity and bite. More prominent tannins because there is decidedly less flesh here. This may outlast it and even overtake it though? Briney finish. (LM)

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 207

The 2003's sensational aromatics offer up scents of blueberries, black raspberries, currants, subtle wood spice and spring flower garden. Rich and full-bodied with exquisite purity, an ethereal elegance yet serious substance, texture and length, this is an example of great winemaking and viticulture. Of course, it doesn't hurt to have a first growth-like terroir. Still in its pre-adolescence, this beauty should age effortlessly for another quarter of a century. Bravo!

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Subtle aromas of red currant, black cherry and plum carry over to the palate in an elegant, supple manner. Excellent balance, depth, complexity and length. The finish is long and persistent, keeping the emphasis on the fruit. 3,699 cases made.

Vinfolio Author: Vinfolio Team Issue: 110

A finely focused nose of mint, cassis, structured blackberry, the fruit is superbly polished and balanced. Black figs and mocha lend filling to the finish.

Warm, dark red berries on the nose and palate accompanied by very soft tannins that somewhat lose their structure into a long finish. I also noted cedar and saddle leather. Didn't wow me as much as my high expectations.
