This vintage is not as promising as hoped based on previous vintages. Licorice, herb, and stewed vegetable-like characteristics make an appearance in this dark plum/garnet-colored effort. Although well-made, medium-bodied, and evolved, with sweet fruit, and a superficial charm, it lacks depth and delineation. Obviously, this vineyard suffered from the vintage’s heat. Drink the 2003 over the next 7-8 years. Wine Advocate.April, 2006

Some blackberry and earthy fruit character with hints of herbs. Medium-bodied, with good fruit but finishes a bit short. Best after 2008. 3,250 cases made. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2006
