Very enjoyable wine. It’s not as complex as one would hope and the fruit is maybe a little too much indicative of the hot 2003 vintage, but with the right food, this is still a very good wine. The texture is velvety rather than silky (silky being what I associate with great red burgundy), but there’s depth, flavor, and length enough to make me happy. Cherry, blackberry, earth, and peat moss. Good, but not great.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
