Having very much liked previous vintages of this Carmenère-Cabernet-Syrah blend, the 2003, while perfectly good, seems a bit short on substance. The nose has a bit more beet and red plum than desirable, and the palate just doesn't have that much style or flair. Registers a bit hot and grabby on the finish.

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
