Gravelly Meadow offers full-on power in 2003, its supple, succulent texture packing truffles and earthiness into its flavor. Its generous dark fruit and bittersweet chocolate tannin balances the alcohol richness. Air lengthens the flavors, bringing out the elegance and complexity in the wine--an indication of the wine's potential development over the next two decades.
Mildly minty in scent, awash in rich oak and smelling of sweet, well-ripened cherries, this bottling turns out to be a bit rounder in feel and flavor compared to its sibling-as its relatively open aromas clearly suggest. It shows fine fruity depth and the usual Diamond Creek tannins, but it is a little less sturdy in character and not so tough at the finish. Not at all ready to drink, it has a long future before it and looks to be a few years ahead of its mates on the aging curve. *One Star*
