90 Points

Sunday, February 19, 2012 - Opened and drank over 90 minutes. I was excited to try this wine after just having the 2002 last weekend. The 03 had a much more singular, tart and charred nose. Marked by the vintage I am sure. Over ripe cherry with a slight chemical character on the long finish. That chemical character faded with time, but this just did not have the complexity or expansive palate of the 2002. A big, impressive wine but for the money I would choose something else.
