    87-90 Full medium ruby. Aromas of roasted currant, espresso and nutty oak, along with an exotic floral note. Lush, full and quite sweet in the mouth, with notes of chocolate and mint. My sample was a bit low in SO2, so it's hard to know just how much backbone this has beneath its flesh. The tannins are substantial, though.

    89 The 2003 is a dense, corpulent effort with a dark ruby/purple color, impressive intensity, and aromas of charcoal, white flowers, blueberries, black currants, and smoke. Medium-bodied, with light tannin, and serious concentration as well as length, it may merit an even higher score than shown. Anticipated maturity: now-2018.
