2003 Clarke, Listrac Top Pick!
2003 Clarke, Listrac

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "With the huge investment of the Edmond de Rothschild family, it is no surprise that this is the most powerful Listrac wine. This is rich, hugely dense, and very ripe. The tannins are more dusty and soft than usual Bordeaux, but that is the year. Vanilla and grilled almonds show through as the wine finishes. A successful wine that should age well. (RV)" (05/2006) Wine Spectator: "Good berry with hints of espresso and tobacco. Medium-bodied, with firm tannins and a medium finish. Smoky aftertaste. (JS)" (03/2006) Jancis Robi ...Read More »

2003 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

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.

2003 Balvenie 14 Year "Peat Week" Vintage Single Malt Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
2003 Balvenie 14 Year "Peat Week" Vintage Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

Whisky Advocate: "This expression dates from 2002, when Balvenie first produced a batch of heavily peated malt. Matured in American oak casks, the nose exhibits subtle peat balanced by honey, vanilla, and ripe red apples. On the palate, the soft smoke is well integrated with vanilla, more honey, ginger, and overripe pears. Ashy peat, citrus fruits, cinnamon, and tangy oak in the finish. An elegant peated whisky. (GS, Winter 2017)" K&L Notes: Another cracking smoky whisky from the newly beloved Peat Week series by The Balvenie. For one week every year, T ...Read More »

95 points James Suckling: "I might have a slight preference for this over the 2001 but I can’t make up my mind yet. It seems to have more richness and sweetness, with loads of apple tart, caramel and spice character. The noble rot certainly did its good here. Long, long finish. Beautiful sweet wine. Drink or hold." (07/2013) 95 points Wine Spectator: "This is very sweet and rich on the nose, with toffee, honey and spices. Full-bodied, with thick honey, spice, dried apricot and syrup flavors.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A spectacular wine, and one that could have been bought for a song when it was released, this blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot was cropped at 33 hectoliters per hectare. Strutting all of its nobility, richness and majesty in 2014, it boasts abundant notes of cedarwood, creme de cassis, licorice and a hint of lead pencil shavings. Full-bodied, rich, dense and fully mature, it is capable of lasting another 7-10 years. This beauty is a big-time sleeper of the vintage. (RP)" (08/2014) 93 points James ...Read More »

2003 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "While I've always loved the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape, it was extremely controversial in its youth due to its exuberance and ripeness. Yet today, with the wine at maturity, all of that controversy has been put to bed and I know of no one contesting the beauty of this wine - the 2007 vintage in Chateauneuf du Pape will be the same. Looking at the 2003 vintage, Paul-Vincent told me that they started harvest on September 5, but quickly had to stop due to rain on the September 7.

2003 Chateau Montelena "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A big wine from the Barrett family (14.2% alcohol), this 2003 exhibits earthy black currant fruit, the restrained but intense Montelena style, full body, good richness and impeccable balance, purity and density. The color is a healthy dark ruby/purple and the wine shows lots of cassis. In spite of the restrained aromatics, the palate is rich, full-bodied, substantial and persuasive. This 2003 is approachable now, but it will be even more gorgeous 15, 20 and 25 years from now. This is a heritage wine from this gre ...Read More »

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This 2003 was showing spectacularly well, and based on my recollection, I think I may have liked it even more than the 2002, which is the reverse of how I felt a decade ago. One of the biggest (14.6% alcohol) wines made by Screaming Eagle during this period, it boasts an opaque ruby/purple color as well as classic, pure, creme de cassis, cedarwood and hints of Asian soy sauce and forest floor notes.

From the importer: "Walter Massa is the real deal: a contadino (farmer) with deep family roots in his native Colli Tortonesi who’s usually plowing his vineyards or buzzing around his cellar when someone arrives for a visit. He’ll then stop to spend hours showing around, pouring wines for, and talking with the continual waves of journalists, sommeliers, importers, buyers, and just plain fans who make their way to his village of Monleale in the southeast corner of Piemonte.

2003 Shafer "Hillside Select" Stag's Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon

The flavors of red and black currants, milk chocolate, figs and smoky vanilla erupt in the mouth, making the tastebuds jump with joy. However, there is also the structure, among the greatest in California Cabs.

The 2003's opaque purple color suggests a wine much younger than ten years of age.

2003 Altesino "Montosoli" Brunello di Montalcino

91 points Vinous: "The single-vineyard 2003 Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli,from one of the region's top sites, is fresher and more vibrant than the regular bottling, with superior balance and finesse. It shows lovely plumpness, clarity and depth in its black cherries, oak, spices and tobacco. This medium to full-bodied wine should drink beautifully over the next decade or so. (AG)" (04/2008) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Displays stewed cherry and mahogany. Full-bodied, with jammy fruit character and a medium finish. Thick and powerful. A little pondero ...Read More »

2003 Shirvington Cabernet Sauvignon McLaren Vale South Australia

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon offers up aromas of cassis liqueur, graphite, toast, smoke, and camphor along with huge body, gorgeous sweetness as well as purity, a multilayered texture, and a colossal finish. I would opt for drinking it over the next 7-8 years, but keep one bottle back until age 12-15. There is so much here it is hard to believe this wine will collapse after 8-10 years of age. Interestingly, this 2003 does not appear to be quite as powerful or concentrated as the 2002s or 2001s, but that’s like spl ...Read More »

2003 Martinelli "Seven Mules Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Pinot Noir 7 Mules Vineyard is an elegant, low-key, restrained, feminine, shy style of Pinot Noir. The wine exhibits nice pomegranate and currant notes, a somewhat understated personality, and a clean, crisp finish. This wine is similar to a Cote de Beaune. (RP)" (02/2005) Wine Spectator: "Plump, ripe and fleshy, with generous plum, black cherry and wild berry fruit that flirts (in a pleasing way) with a touch of jam. Ends with spicy notes and firm tannins that have a touch of chalkiness. (JL)" (06/2005)

2003 Saint-Pierre, St-Julien

94 points James Suckling: "Mint, blackberry, and currant on the nose follow through to a full body, with soft velvety tannins and a new wood and ripe fruit aftertaste. Tight and firm, but wait until after 2012 to pull the cork." (03/2011) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Beefy, masculine, vigorous, full-bodied wine, the 2003 Saint-Pierre is just beginning to hit full maturity. A lovely bouquet of cedarwood, forest floor, roasted herbs, black currants, new saddle leather and spice is followed by a long, well-made, beefy, rich, voluptuously text ...Read More »
