Tasting Notes

Surprisingly youthful. Concentrated black fruit aromas with a hint of tobacco open to a silky palate with layers of blackberries, nice acidity and soft tannins all in balance. Expected to be an early maturing vintage, 2003 continues to defy aging with its elegance and seamless balance. Enjoy now through 2028 in 750mL and magnum bottles.
