The high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in this vineyard (65%) paid off in the ripeness of 2003. This is a powerful, very ripe wine, full of sunshine. Wood flavors support the big black fruit. If it lacks the complexity of its succeeding vintage, this 2003 makes up with its openness and generosity. Imported by France Wine.
