Winemaker's Notes

The color is of a dense red. On the nose, we have hints of cherry, plum and spices. The wine is profound yet elegant with a soft tannic structure and an extremely long finish.

Due to the heat of the vintage, the dominant aromas are well matured dark berries.

Critical Acclaim

"Aromas of blackberry, forest fruits and licorice with just a hint of spice. Full-bodied, with loads of ripe fruit and velvety tannins. Raisins, toasted oak and just a hint of dark chocolate."
93 Points

"Dense ruby/purple-colored with a spicy, sweet nose of jammy cherries, mocha, and a hint of resin, the plump, fleshy 2003 Hosanna reveals light to moderate tannin. It is an impressively constituted blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. This stylish effort is exceptionally successful in such a challenging vintage for Pomerol. Give it 1-3 years of bottle age, and drink it over the following 14+ years."
90 Points

"Full medium red. Sexy nose offers red raspberry, mocha, truffle and toffee. Sweet, dense and lush in the mouthy, with nicely concentrated flavors of red fruits, caramel and toasty oak. Finishes with sweet tannins and noteworthy persistence. A very successful effort for 2003: today I find every bit as much energy and primary red fruit character here as in the 2003 Trotanoy."
