Wine Details





Wine Description

(2003 Vintage) "Lots of roasted fruit, jam and currant aromas here. Full-bodied and very chewy with loads of tannins. Mouthpuckering. This is very extracted and tannic. But softens with air. Needs time. Best after 2009."Wine Spectator91 Points

    Some cork taint. Tar, lead, restrained fruit, salty nose, interesting as hell. Great balance, smooth, extremely short fruit, replaced with green tannic finish, mouthpuckering. Good serious left bank bordeaux, not for everyone.
