The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa (78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot) possesses a sweet, jammy bouquet of black currants intermixed with barbecue smoke, tobacco, espresso, and herbs. It offers a sexy, fleshy entry, but falls off at the back of the palate. Although heady, with plenty of superficial, up-front fruit, there is not much substance or follow through on the palate. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.

Complex, with a mix of creamy vanilla-tinged oak, dried currant, herb, pencil lead and sage notes that are tight and tannic, ending with a mineral and pebble aftertaste. Well-balanced.

Nose of black fruit and berries. Deep rouge color. Very traditional Napa Cab. Just delicious. Enjoyed with BBQ Lamb chops. Wow. I did decant it 1.5 hours before serving.
