    November 19, 2017 - From a 375. A mix of red & black fruit on the nose.

    Good acidity, and mostly red fruits on the nose. I didn't buy a lot of 2003's because of the heat, but this is still drinking very well at this point.

    September 9, 2017 - Rich and just of edge of over ripe. If you like a slightly rich, ripe style this wine is in perfect condition. I found myself going back for more.

    April 15, 2017 - Translucent ruby in the glass (lighter than the '07 I just wrote about). Earthy notes with red and black fruits.

    Given the heat of the vintage, I remain impressed by how balanced this wine is, with decent acidity. That said, not a great vintage for Rancia, but still quite drinkable.
