2003 Duckhorn "Patzimaro" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1063067 92 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Deep, well-defined and wonderfully constant, ripe currant fruit makes this one our choice of the Duckhorn bunch, and, while a rich and heady working with lots of meat on its bones, it is also a neatly composed wine whose integral tannins are buffered by extract to spare. It is, in fact, sufficiently supple and fruity as to tempt drinking now, but we see it getting better with age and urge four or five years of cellaring. *Two Stars* Inner quote mark (12/2006)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Patzimaro Vineyard may possess the most opaque purple color of this group. The richest, most youthful of these wines, it exhibits sweet creme de cassis notes intermixed with hints of flowers and background oak. This full-bodied, textured, authoritative effort is a classic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Still young, but accessible, it should hit its peak in 3-4 years and evolve for two decades thereafter. (RP) 92+ Inner quote mark (6/2013)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This Cab, with a little Cab Franc and Merlot, is more accessible than Duckhorn's other '03 single vineyard Cabs, but it's still tough in sticky, sandpapery tannins. But there's some lovely cherry, tangerine custard, blueberry and gingerbread fruit flavor, and the wine should be perfect with a grilled steak. Inner quote mark (4/2007)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep, saturated ruby.Blackberry, sassafras and licorice on the nose.Deep, sweet and lush but with a juicy character and good floral lift to the black fruit and licorice flavors.Finishes with firm-edged tannins whose youthful toughness argues for a few years of cellaring. (ST) Inner quote mark (1/2007)

Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This vineyard at the base of Spring Mountain produced an earthy 2003. The fruit is smooth with cherry and chocolate flavors and redder flavors of raspberries. The tannins are hard, but the wine is not raisined; instead, it's well managed for the vintage, and may develop into a complex cabernet with age. Inner quote mark (12/2006)
