99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Am I being too stingy with the 2003 Chateau Margaux? A wine of extraordinary complexity and intensity, it reveals a deep purple color, a style not unlike the 1990 Margaux (possibly even more concentrated), a velvety texture, and notes of spring flowers interwoven with camphor, melted licorice, creme de cassis, and pain grille. Not a blockbuster, it offers extraordinary intensity as well as a surreal delicacy/lightness. There is riveting freshness to this offering, which tips the scales at a lofty (for this estate...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From an Oakville hillside vineyard, the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Stagecoach Vineyard possesses a dense purple color, a scorched earth/broodingly backward, volcanic style, and extraordinary concentration as well as richness. A tightly-knit personality and a tannic structure suggest patience will be required. (RP)" (12/2005) 93 points Connoisseurs Guide: " *Two Stars* Unstinting ripeness is matched step for step here by voluminous fruit and a wealth of wonderfully rich oak, but the wine is far more than a simple e...

Aromas of mountain strawberries and cherry are present, but this wine is far more complex than primary fruit. Over days, an opened bottle reveals intriguing layers. There is the venerable smell of the interior of an antique armoire, perhaps leather and tobacco too. At a certain point the wine shows an iron and mineral coldness that then passes to saffron and earthy depth. The fruit is persistent, but not dominant, as it changes from fresh ripe red fruits to hibiscus flower and tea flavors. The texture, although more supple than the previous vintage, is f...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at Corney’s Clos de Tart vertical. This has been a monumental Clos de Tart since the day it was born. Much deeper in colour that commensurate vintages, the 2003 retains that decadent, almost outrageous bouquet with blueberry, damson, black olive and an almost Barolo-like fruit profile. Well…they do say they are similar! The palate is full-bodied, surfeit with glycerine, rich and extravagant with luscious, lascivious dark berried fruit, Xmas cake and fresh fig. Cashmere tannins towards the finish. You cann...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "One of the nine crus bourgeois exceptionnel, this estate is under the ownership of the Cazes family of Château Lynch-Bages. With the same winemaking team, it’s no wonder that Ormes de Pez is up with classed growths in quality. The character of 2003 gives this wine black tarry flavors, but it hasn’t spoiled the wine’s dry tannins, structure or its long-term potential. (RV)" (05/2006) 90 points James Suckling: "Very jammy, with a peppery and meaty finish. Full bodied, with soft and round tannins and a yummy finish. A fruit for...

2003 Rauzan-Despagne "Grande Réserve", Bordeaux Supérieur

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Meaty and ripe wine with medium body, round tannins and a light finish. Slightly herbal undertone but well done." (03/2006)

2003 Araujo "Altagracia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (bin soiled label)
New!
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Araujo’s second wine, Altagracia, is almost too good to be true. There are 750 cases of the 2003 Altagracia, a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, and 6% Petit Verdot. It is much more fruit-forward than its bigger sibling, but definitely displays the Eisele Vineyard style in its deep purple color, sweet nose of flowers, crushed rocks, blueberries, creme de cassis, and earth, super-sweet tannin, well-integrated acidity, and opulent personality. (RP)" (12/2006) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Win...


95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The spectacular 2003 Pontet Canet is still incredibly young and vigorous. This full-bodied classic boasts a dense purple color as well as a superb nose of graphite, creme de cassis, forest floor, licorice and a hint of truffles, low acidity, and extravagant richness. Most of the tannins have been resolved in this superstar of the vintage. It should continue to drink well for 10-15+ years. (RP) 95+" (08/2014) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ruby-red. Roasted blackberry, coffee and mocha on...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another wine I’ve had multiple times recently, the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon (97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Merlot) is pure perfection in a glass and yields off-the-hook aromatics of cassis, black raspberries, tobacco leaf, pepper and licorice. Deep, layered and even elegant, with a seamless texture that conceals the sheer wealth of material present, it builds through the mid-palate, possesses huge amounts of extract and masses of polished tannin on the finish. Despite the overall size, it never loses its Cabernet...

98 points Wine Spectator: "Intense blackberry and cherry, with hints of currant. Toasted oak and sweet tobacco too. Roses and other flowers, such as lilacs. Full-bodied, with masses of tannins yet incredibly long and seductive. *Collectibles. #3 of Top 100 Wines of 2006* (JS)" (03/2006) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A spectacular success, the opaque plum-colored 2003 Leoville Barton is still on the young side of its plateau of maturity. It exhibits a striking bouquet of forest floor and black currants as well as a full-bodied, exuberant, yo...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A wine I’ve been lucky enough to have numerous times recently, the 2003 Cote Rotie Chateau d’Ampuis is an off-the-hook effort that gives up plenty of plum sauce, smoked duck, licorice, tar, vanilla bean and violet aromas and flavors. Never acidified, it has awesome freshness and focus to go with full-bodied richness, a hedonistic texture and a blockbuster-styled finish. While it’s not for those craving delicate-styled aromas and textures, I think it’s a gorgeous effort that will continue to drink nicely over the ...




92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A blend of Oakville, Rutherford and Calistoga, this Cab shows a classic Napa profile. The most beautifully ripe cassis and black cherries are the flavors, with a chocolate edge enriched with classy, smoky oak, and the tannins are wonderfully rich and detailed." (11/2006)

Bob Broman is a veteran winemaker, with a 30+-year resume that includes some of the California stalwarts: Stag's Leap Wine Cellars, Concannon, St. Supery. With his wife, daughter and son-in-law, he creates premium, handcrafted Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc from Napa. From the winery: "Complex, yet smooth and supple, this wine presents aromas of plum, pomegranate and cranberry fruits with traces of cocoa, leather and cedar. Full and rich in the mouth with fine integrated tannins; our Cabernet has a long, smooth finish. This is a stunning wine tha...

Robert Parker writes: "One of the veteran winemakers of Napa Valley, Dawnine Dyer began her career at Robert Mondavi in 1974 then moved on to Domaine Chandon. She now produces these wines on Diamond Mountain."

Winery notes: "At Dyer Straits Wine Co., we have a singular focus. We planted Dyer vineyard in 1993 on a site where volcanic gravel mingles with large volcanic boulders that slid from the ridge above thousands of years ago. The 2.3 acres of vines are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, 78% and two Bordeaux blending varieties; Cabernet Franc, 16% and Petit Verdot, 6% - a mix which we have refined over the years. Our farming methods are sustainable, we use only organic sprays to prevent mildew, and weed whackers instead of herbicide- we live here after all."

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: " Looking first at his Crozes Hermitage, and a wine that will stand toe to toe with any number of Hermitages, the 2003 Crozes Hermitage Les Varonniers offers thrilling black fruits, saddle leather, spice and cured meat-like qualities to go with a sexy, full-bodied, and layered profile on the palate. It will continue to evolve gracefully, but there’s no reason to delay gratification and I’d enjoy this fabulous Syrah over the coming couple of years. (JD)" (04/2014) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Very ripe, but racy t...

Wine Enthusiast: "A beautiful effort from Heidi Barrett, this is a big, ripe, somewhat soft wine, stuffed with blackberry, cherry, coffee and cocoa flavors, and splashed with Provençal herbs. Rich and tannic now, it should age for a decade. " (05/2007) K&L Notes: From winemaker Heidi Peterson Barrett of Screaming Eagle, Dalla Valle Vineyards, Paradigm Winery, and Grace Family Vineyards. This Revana Cabernet Sauvignon is a great example of the 2003 vintage showing off ripe black cherry and cassis aromas. The purity of fruit is very enticing, with underl...

2003 St Clement "Oroppas" Napa Valley Red Blend (1.5L)
New!
91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The proprietary Bordeaux blend, the 2003 Oroppas, which is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon with some Merlot and Petit Verdot, exhibits a dense purple color and a big, sweet nose of white flowers, blueberries, espresso roast, white chocolate, and spicy oak. The wine is rich, supple-textured, medium to full-bodied, approachable, and already revealing surprising complexity. It should drink well for 10-12 years." (12/2005) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby-red. Brooding aromas of cass...



94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As expected, the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Quartz is a ripe, exuberant effort. Plum, figs, licorice, roasted herbs and roasted meats are just some of the nuances here, and it has full-bodied richness, good concentration and sweet tannin. Drink it over the coming couple of years. (JD)" (08/2014) 91-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Soaring aromas of red berries, Asian spices and pungent rose oil. Thick and creamy on the palate, with flavors of kirsch, spicy strawberry and plum...

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Very fine, but tough at this time, a Cabernet that needs serious cellar time. Is it an ager? Pretty guaranteed, to judge by the big, ripe, lockdown tannins, the savory acids, and the core of sweet, sap-rich black currants. Lots of sweet new oak, too, but a wine of this size needs it. Best 2010–2015." (12/2006) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From the northern end of Napa Valley, literally in the shadow of Mt. St. Helena, this hillside Cabernet Sauvignon made by winemaker Mark Herold reveals a loa...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 8% Malbec, and the rest Cabernet Franc, the 2003 Pritchard Hill Estate Proprietary Red continues to demonstrate the renaissance of this estate. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by aromas and flavors of graphite, blueberries, cassis, and acacia flowers. Medium to full-bodied and pure, with sweet tannin, fine balance, and a long finish, this is a terrific offering from the slopes of Pritchard Hill. It should drink beautifully for 12-15 years." (12/2006)...



93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Speaking of a Heavyweight, the 2003 (50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% equal parts Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc) is a sensational 375-case effort from the Thorevilos Vineyard owned by David Abreu and Ric Foreman. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by an explosive bouquet of black and blue fruits, cedar, and high quality French oak. Boasting tremendous richness, fatness, opulence, and a viscous feel in the mouth, it is a big, in-your-face offering with low acidity, huge fruit, and a blockbuste...

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "My favorite wine of this quartet is the 2003 Cariad, a proprietary blend (50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 9% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc) that comes from David Abreu-owned vineyards, primarily the Madrona Ranch in St. Helena. Its dense color is accompanied by a big, sweet bouquet of charcoal, white chocolate, spring flowers, meaty, blueberry and blackberry fruit. This stunningly complex, rich, full-bodied 2003 is just entering its plateau of full maturity. Drink this beauty over the next 10-15 years. (...

Wine Spectator: "A dash of creamy oak softens the tannins in this version, while a touch of vanilla takes away from the twinge of bitterness. Rich and complete, this is good but nothing exceptional.?2003 California Cabernet blind retrospective (July 2013). (JL, Web Only-2013)"

2003 Barnett Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon
Back In Stock!
92 points Wine Enthusiast: " *Cellar Selection* This is a very fine Cabernet, a bit too young for complete enjoyment now due to tough mountain tannins, but there's a fleshy opulence to the fruit. Totally dry, the wine feels rich and balanced, and is Bordeaux-like in its feminine elegance, suggesting a fine St-Julien. " (08/2006) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(includes bits of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) Good ruby-red. Pure, elegant nose offers currant, tobacco, coffee, licorice and brown spices. Sweet, firm and aromatic, w...

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep, bright ruby-red. A real potpourri of a nose: clove, cinnamon, sandalwood, orange peel and licorice. Then sweet, round and rich, but with very strong, if not exotic, oak spices; I was reminded of mulled cider. Fairly large-scaled for a cabernet from this estate. Finishes with a note of chocolate and supple tannins that coat the entire mouth. The Grace cabernet appears to be sacrificing some floral delicacy in favor of more sweetness and weight, partly through the use of a higher percentage of ne...

2003 La Couspaude, St-Emilion
Back In Stock!
91 points Wine Spectator: "Aromas of blackberry, chocolate and toasted oak follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a long, caressing finish. Refined and silky for the vintage. Best after 2007." (07/06) 89 points Robert Parker: "An attractive blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the dense ruby/purple-hued 2003 La Couspaude exhibits a big, smoky, oaky nose, loads of sweet black currant and cherry fruit, medium body, and abundant superficial charm. However, there is not much depth or persistence. Neve...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Lafite Rothschild comes as close to perfection as any of the great Lafites made over the past three decades (1982, 1986, 1996, 2000, 2005, 2008, 2009 and 2010). This sensational effort came in at 12.7% natural alcohol, it is made in the style of one of this estate’s great classics, the 1959. Composed of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color to the rim along with a luxurious bouquet of cedarwood, lead pencil shaving, white ch...

90 points and one star from the Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine: "A measured Merlot leading with scents of red cherries and sweet plums buttressed by creamy, slightly caramelly oak, this bottling is fairly full in weight and well-balanced throughout. Its flavors again favor both ripe cherries and plums and look to a streak of fine-grained tannins for support. Polish and precision make this one a wine to remember." (March 2007) From winemaker Heidi Peterson Barrett. This 2003 wine shows off wide open aromas of ripe plum and cherry with layers of su...

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "2003 Little E: Named after Manfred Krankl’s wife, Elaine, this blend of 78% Grenache, 12% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah was one of the first cuvees from the estate’s 11 Confessions Vineyard in the Santa Rita Hills. The rest of the fruit came from the Alban, Alta Mesa and Bien Nacido sites. Aged primarily in 300-liter hogsheads, this wine performed brilliantly in the tastings, starting a succession of prodigious Grenaches to emerge from Sine Qua Non. Fabulous fruit intensity, with loads of black cherry, black currant, l...

2003 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The best wine of this group is the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve. For statisticians, the composition includes 32% from the St. Helena Home Vineyard, 19% from the Steinhauer Ranch, 12% from Marston Vineyard, 12% from Bancroft Ranch, 8% from the Quarry Vineyard, 6% from Rancho del Oso, 6% from Chabot, 3% from Bancroft, and 2% from Steinhauer Ranch. All these grapes were hand-picked between September 19 and October 28. This is a winner that is seemingly just entering its plateau of full maturity. It boasts...

98 points Wine Enthusiast: "From the winery's estate vineyard, high up on Pritchard Hill above the Silverado Trail, comes this spectacular Cab-based masterpiece. The color is purple-black, and massively saturated. Very intricate, complex, totally enjoyable, almost perfect. Like a great Pauillac, this monumental wine announces cassis, blackberry, cigar box, pencil lead, spice and cedar flavors that go on and on. Very tannic, but so beautiful, and amazingly rich. Decant if you're drinking now, or open anytime through 2020. *Cellar Selection* " (09/2006) ...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From 16-year-old vines, the inky/purple-tinged 2003 Shiraz Seven Acres was aged 28 months in American wood, but it has soaked up all its vanillin characteristics, exhibiting a beautifully sweet nose of blueberries, blackberries, tar, and crushed rocks. Dense, full-bodied, and opulent, this stunning Shiraz is a candidate for “Shiraz of the Vintage” in 2003. Drink it over the next 15+ years. " (10/2006)
Price: $109.99

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the smallest crops to be included in the Ridge Monte Bello, only 32% of the production made it into the 2003, which is largely Cabernet Sauvignon (85%) and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot. Out of barrel as well as post-bottling I liked this wine a lot, and it has changed very little from when I last tasted it in February, 2010. It boasts an inky/blue/purple color along with sweet black currant, blueberry, graphite, licorice and toasty vanillin aromas. The tannins are still noticeable in this full-bodied 2...



98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The best bottle of this I've had (and I've had plenty), Usseglio's 2003 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée de Mon Aieul is a blockbuster and one of the true stars of this vintage. Almost all Grenache (there's a small part of Syrah and Cinsault) that was harvest between September 1-13, partially destemmed and aged in both tank and foudre, this massive, voluptuous effort is almost overflowing with notes of ground herbs, chocolate dusted meats, black fruits and licorice. Showing none of the negative traits of the vintage, wi...

95 points Wine Spectator: "Aromas of tar and smoke, with very pure, concentrated blackberry and spice notes underneath mark this exotic, seductive red. Silky and complex, it caresses the palate. It needs a little time to absorb the oak, but this is long and has great potential. (BS)" (05/2006) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated ruby-red. Aromas of blackberry liqueur and dark tropical chocolate; "like a bon-bon," says Pithiot. Sweet, lush and huge, stuffed with fruit and torrefaction flavors. Amazingly thick and almost too ...

Back In Stock!
98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The sensational 2003 Syrah Reva Vineyard may be the finest example of this cuvée Alban has yet produced. Nearly endless depth as well as an extraordinarily flamboyant bouquet of blackberries, truffles, acacia flowers, and sweet tar emerge from this broad, opulent, full-bodied, incredibly rich Syrah. (RP)" (08/2006) 97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "An absolutely stunning, massive wine, the 2003 Alban Vineyards Syrah Reva is completely opaque purple in color and delivers unbelievably intense, rich aromatics of blackberry ...
