The 2003's a general rule are all drinking at peak now. It was a very hot vintage. Some wines got very ripe and others, stayed green when the plants shut down due to the heat. Inky purple in color. Opaque and bright. The nose has cassis, spice and cinnamon. Very clean. On the palate, this has light to medium tannins, still plenty of cherries and black cherries. Ripe bit not over the top although concentrated. Long finish. This probably won't get better but should be good for another ten to fifteen years. it will work well with grilled or roasted meats or on its own.
