Bordeaux (Portobellos): Fruity nose with just a little alcohol peaking through and a bit of fine leather. The leather carries through on the palate with soft and ripe dark fruits. The warm vintage shows a little. Enjoyed it.
This went skiing and the chalet liked this wine. Great blackcurrant, good notes of tobacco and choc. Fruit forward but there is more to this wine if you let it breathe and warm a little. Like many 03s, don't pop and pour unless you want to reaffirm the stereotype of the vintage.
