The first thing you’ll notice here is the outstanding quality of this wine (forget talk of 2003 being a difficult vintage). Thick and lush, notes of blackberry, blueberry, cherry and chocolate abound, but so does Mediterranean sage and herb that adds dimension and complexity. Fabulously taut and firm: drink after 2010.
This wine waltzes up to the nose with the most delicate steps to offer crisp aromas of roses, golden apples and kiwi. It offers a pleasant balance that finishes on a dry and clean note.
