No detailed notes. In a good spot right now. Balanced, relatively elegant. Earlier bottles showed a fair amount of oak. That's much more in check this time around...almost to the point that it's in the background relative to other components. Still seems to have a good deal of life left (acidity and tannins not completely resolved, but enough fruit to suggest further aging possibilities). This has gotten "brighter" each time I've opened it. Last bottle was 3 years ago. A nice showing for the '03 vintage, which I've had hit and miss experiences with, and probably the best of the several bottles I've tried since 2007. Good QPR at $39.
