The '02 Exile had plenty of oak, and this '03 has its share as well (coffee, toast, spice, mocha—the works). This edition, though, has very juicy plum and raspberry fruit to back it up, along with smooth, suave tannins and a tangy cranberry finish. Hedonistic? Yes. An ager? Maybe not. Drink up.

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.
