Winemaker's Notes

The heatwave and drought have made the 2003 a highly concentrated vintage. Very chewy, but not lacking finesse. Our grapes varieties are well suited to these extreme conditions, and didn't suffer too much; yields are low, but quality is high. An aromatic array typical of the vintage, with very (but not overly) ripe fruits, with topnotes of cherry and plum, and laced with spice, liquorice and garrigue scents…

"Big wine, with a wall of structure around a core of black currant, blackberry and fig fruit. Plenty of exotic spice, dark chocolate, licorice and graphite notes skitter in the background, with a long finish that drips with fruit. Best from 2008 through 2025. 6,250 cases made."
-Wine Spectator
