  • Double decanted and left in bottle for two hours before drinking it. It was a nice red color with no indication of moving to Garnet or Brick. The lip was a little thin which came with the age. The nose was black berry, black cherry, plum with some chocolate and hints of vanilla. It was medium bodied with a silky texture and balanced tannins. Mid palate was a little floral, with earth, dark cherry and plum. The finish was mid length in finish. I have one bottle left and will hold for a year or so.

  • I've enjoyed drinking this wine. It matured nicely, while not a standout it certainly drank well...my last bottle

  • This wine has certainly gained weight since our last visit 18 months ago...

    Showing maturity with its ambering edges and clarity, with increasing viscosity over 3 hours. Given its 2003 signature, it is full of ripe fruit, intertwined with overripe fruit, and for that reason should be enjoyed sooner rather than later. Tasting notes include cherries, reclaimed oak, and pomerol.

    My experience with LAP is that the wines tend to be light bodied and elegant and very enjoyable as long as they are not matched with opulent wines in the same evening. I have also seen these wines reach a maturity, a decline, and a resurge to greatness, such as the 1995. Given the price and the pedigree, I find this a bargain and a great dinner party wine.

    Drink it over next 3 years and save a couple bottles for 10 years.

  • Decanted in the glass for half hour. Plums and cassis but somewhat muted, soft leather, touch of earthiness. Restrained on the nose.
