A year and a half ago this wine came acorss ripe, robust and not the least bit rustic. But now it's showing many signs of the hot 2003 vintage, including a soft structure and some stewy, leather notes. It's by no means fallen off to the point of being a poor wine, but hasn't improved and should be drunk now for best results.
