The 2003 vintage was dry and warm with low yields, perfect for red wines with good tannin maturity, nice development of flavors, and good concentration. This vintage is one of the best years in the last decade for red wines.
Rich garnet in color with intense aromas of ripe red fruits. Bright notes of plum and cherry followed by a hint of vanilla. Abundant flavors of juicy, ripe berries and a hint of toast, with balanced fresh acidity, soft tannins and good structure. Full-bodied with a smooth finish.
Root: 1 Cabernet pairs well with barbequed steak or a colorful, fresh stir-fry. The rich, ripe flavors also complement dishes like grilled chicken or shrimp. Before dinner, try it with hard salami or salted nuts, and a selection of mild to medium cheeses.
