Tasting notes

The nose shows ripe fruit first: cherries, raspberries and red plums, with coffee/ vanilla notes and licorice galore.

The flavors mirror the aromas, and the fat, ripe mouthfeel is persistent but not heavy, due to the acid balance and dusty tannins.

Though this is certainly a less precise wine than cooler-vintage examples we have made, this wine delivers great drinking pleasure and has at least another 6-7 years of life in it under optimum conditions.

The Harvest

2003 was a particularly hot and dry year.

It was only when the grape harvest was imminent that the temperatures fell slightly. The grape harvest took place between the 14th and 18th of September, calmly and attentively.

To conserve the aromatic freshness, obviously the berries of the few bunches that showed signs of sunburn were discarded.
