Figured this would be a total hit or a total miss given the difficult vintage. Some people managed to pull 03 off with amazing fruit, but this was rare even at release, nevermind ten years later. This wine was under ripe and tasted of a vintage where the vines simply shutdown. Purchased and drank two bottles of this in quick succession and the one confirmed the other. Some tart red fruit but mostly just acid, a bit of funk, and just thin on the palate, the wine coming off already slightly oxidised and the fruit tired out. Not much more to say.
- It's balanced with a full body. Bright texture with a long finish - Nose ripe red fruits, plum,cherry,craneberry and hints of white pepper. Mouth of the same very integrated fruits, balanced tanins and acidity. Mates extremly well with mouse fillet, rosted vegetables and a creamyblack currant sause.
