Loads of crushed berries and hints of wild currant. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and a long, caressing finish. Jammy, yet soft and fresh. Yummy wine. Hard not to drink now. Best after 2007. 1,380 cases made."

"A sleeper of the vintage as well as the finest offering I have tasted from this estate, this 2003 reveals a 1990-like opulence and ripe, heady character with low acidity, a sweet mid-palate, abundant fruit, and a broad, intoxicating finish. Let’s hope that an excessive fining and filtration prior to bottling does not rob it of character or texture. It should drink well for 7-10 years." -87-90 Points - Robert Parker - The Wine Advocate
