Whenever I see a '03 from Napa or Sonoma at a good price, I typically buy it. I loved the vintage and Rutherford Hill is usually a good middle-of-the-road bet. In this case, the winemaker says muscular and lean; I'll go with lean. It's a softer cab with a nice round finish and I'd buy it again but would reserve it for a weekday. I'm not going to impress anyone with it, but it's a good choice on most days!
