International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 126

($125) Good full ruby-red. Brooding, pure aromas of black fruits, licorice and shoe polish; this smells like young, austere Bordeaux. Then slightly reduced and tightly wound in the mouth and currently dominated by its powerful structure. There are intense black fruits here, but the wine is in an awkward stage today, with the tannins currently dominating. Almost certainly better than it's showing: I'd wait at least three or four years before pulling the cork.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 162

The deep ruby/purple-hued 2003 Proprietary Red H Block Hudson Vineyard (a 500-case blend of 60% Cabernet Franc and 40% Merlot) exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as aromas of sassafras, underbrush, menthol, cassis, crushed rocks, and graphite. Although more closed than it was last year out of barrel, it reveals a beautiful texture, an explosively rich style, and a long, pure finish. I would not be surprised to see this wine merit a score in the mid-nineties once it sheds some of its tannin.

Pleasing bouquet but falls short on the palette. Thick and harsh with immature tannins, almost hot for only 14.1% alcohol. Fruit weak and (therefore I do not believe it will improve much) and although a very long finish, not a terribly pleasant one. Disappointing overall.
