Community Tasting Note

  • napasoutherner Likes this wine: 90 points

    May 8, 2015 - This wine underperformed in my opinion. I know 2003 was a very hot vintage but the wine was almost an Amarone style wine. Deep, very hot, very grape-y, chewy, brooding wine. You could almost taste the texture of the grape skins in this wine. While other 2003 Pegau's were wonderful, this one wasn't as pleasing as I'd hoped. Opened for 30 minutes before drinking then after 1 hour after tasting it started to mellow out and take it's full stride.

    5/9/15, 5:47 PM - I've had 8 of these so far, sourced from different sellers, and I've had wide variation. The good ones have been amazing. Some have been average at best. Others have said there were multiple bottlings and that the first was the best, but I don't know if that's accurate. Regardless, keep trying it; when you get a good one, it's an incredible experience.
