Vintage Notes
2003

The 2003 vintage had optimal conditions, featuring brilliantly sunny days, cool nights and minimal rain. The preceding winter was cold and dry, with excessive snow in the Andes Mountains filling the high altitude aquifers which feed our vineyards with pure melted snow runoff. A Zonda wind pushed temperatures above historical averages and generated an early spring, followed by a warm and dry summer. January and February featured a heat wave, where temperatures at times reached 20 year highs. As a result, the vines held lower average cluster weight. The autumn was also sunny, yet cooler, adding to the healthy sugar concentration in grapes.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Powerful yet elegant, this sexy red positively explodes with red cherries in the mouth, followed by aromas of roses, red licorice and cassis. The considerable volume and structure are supported by beautifully well integrated, velvety tannins. Complex aromas on the back palate drive the very pleasing, substantial finish. This is a powerful, luscious wine that will evolve wonderfully with aging.

Corpulent, structured and very well-balanced. Tannins add a silky and soft sensation to the wine’s great volume and concentration...
