I don't know why the other two people that had this didn't rate it higher. I'm enjoying it in 2013 and it has gorgeous fruit still. It is plump, with mild acidity and just a wonderful round mouthfeel. Slight cherry with hints of sweet blueberry. it is well balanced and long lasting. This is a wine with all fruit flavors, don't detect much earth or spice, but each sip is just complete. Wish I had other bottles left in my cellar.
Drank with friends at Grantley's Restaurant, Queenstown. Good. Nothing wrong with it but nothing special either. Generally confirms that 2003 is not a great vintage. That said, the 2003 Mount Difficulty drunk at home the next day knocked it into a cocked hat .
