The bouquet is blackberry, black currant, roasted coffee, vanilla and exotic spice aromas. The flavor is rich black cherry and currant, licorice, mineral and expresso flavors; superb body and complexity coupled with balanced ripeness and fresh acidity; polished but firm tannins, layered richness and a long finish.
"The brilliant 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Wight Vineyard (which is not produced in every vintage) is denser than the regular bottling, although the color is a similar opaque ruby/purple. The wine exhibits more licorice, smoke, and black currant notes interwoven with high quality, smoky, but subtle toasty oak. A wine of tremendous purity, full body, voluptuous texture, heady levels of glycerin, and a 40+ second finish, this beauty can be drunk early in life or cellared for 15 years."
