(2003 Vintage) "A sexy, smoky nose of tapenade, black cherry jam, cedar, and Asian spices soars from the glass of this expressive 2003. Once past the flamboyant aromatics, the wine reveals broad, expansive flavors, medium to full body, low acidity, and an undeniably exciting style. Consume it over the next decade. It is a sleeper of the vintage."-Wine Advocate 90 Points

International Wine Cellar(1999 Vintage) Medium ruby-red. Aromas of currant, blueberry, menthol, leather, cedar and mint. Sweet, soft and silky; this will be approachable early. Finishes with substantial but ripe tannins. Like the Saint-Pierre, under the same ownership, this '99 comes across as far sweeter and lusher than the rather ungiving, dry '98.
