Smoky vanilla bean-scented oak adds a nice flavor dimension and at this stage slightly overshadows the ripe currant and black cherry fruit. But it's well-balanced and focused and on the finish, turning complex, with a long, integrated aftertaste.
The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon is a dense, ruby/purple-tinged effort with deep, full-bodied flavors. However, it is slightly monolithic when compared to the more expressive and exuberant Merlot. It’s all there, and I suspect another 1-3 years of bottle age will be beneficial. It should last for 12 or more years.
