Grapes: 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 10% cabernet franc, 1% petit verdot

Aging: French Oak Barrels

Tasting Notes: Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: “A beauty of cassis, plum, tobacco leaf and spice, this dark plum/purple-hued, medium to full-bodied 2003 reveals sweet, round, cassis flavors. It has reached full maturity, but shows no signs of decline, and should continue to hold at this plateau for another decade. Although the 2003 is not up to the perfect levels of the 2009 and 2010, it is unquestionably a noteworthy success in a vintage that did not favor Pessac-Leognan.”
