International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 126

($46) Good deep red with ruby highlights. Ripe, expressive nose offers plum, strawberry, currant and tobacco. Dense, fat and sweet, with lovely breadth but also excellent vinosity for the year. The red fruit, tobacco and smoke flavors are nicely framed by firm acids. Finishes broad and long, with sweet tannins and plenty of energy. Accessible now but should evolve positively for a decade or more.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 164

The opulent, accessible 2003 offers a dense plum/ruby-tinged color and a big, sweet bouquet of creme de cassis, smoked herbs, lead pencil, and subtle wood. It is a deep, fleshy, medium to full-bodied offering with low acidity, a plump, opulent texture, and a heady finish. Enjoy this beauty over the next 15+ years.

Loads of blackberry and licorice with hints of meat and smoked oak. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and lots of very ripe and exotic fruit. Very exotic and wild. Rich finish. 8,330 cases made.

Shows the ripe fruitiness of the vintage, framed by pleasantly funky brett and an iron undertow. This is one of the few bordeaux I've had that taste like a bordeaux. Not for everyone, but should please fans of the Old World style. Good value for the price. Drink now through 2016.

biggsy Trust Rating: 100 Tasted On: 02/20/2010

Dark ruby with a pinkish rim. The nose is bloody and iron-rich with tobacco, wet flint and a hint of tomato. Quite youthful with grippy tannins, concentrated blackcurrant fruit and spicy cedar. The most youthful wine of the day.

Loads of blackberry and licorice with hints of meat and smoked oak. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and lots of very ripe and exotic fruit. Very exotic and wild. Rich finish. Best after 2009.
