The 2003 is a flamboyant Dead Arm, comparable in finesse and quality to the superb 1998, and only outclassed by the legendary 2001. The wine exhibits a clean, dense ruby color and is packed with exuberant aromas of raspberry, cassis and burnt tar. The fruit carries on with elegance as the wine caresses the palate oh so softly with added interlaced layers of chocolate, vanillin and deliciously decadent red velvet cupcake. This wonderful tour de force is capped by an astounding 45 second finish that lingers on and on leaving you yearning for the next sip. A magnificent effort. Drink now until 2025.
