  1. Chapoutier Crozes Hermitage Les Varonniers 2003
    WA94
    $89.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points!  Looking first at his Crozes Hermitage, and a wine that will stand toe to toe with any number of Hermitages, the 2003 Crozes Hermitage Les Varonniers offers thrilling black fruits, saddle leather, spice and cured meat-like qualities to go with a sexy, full-bodied, and layered profile on the palate. It will continue to evolve gracefully, but there’s no reason to delay gratification and I’d enjoy this fabulous Syrah over the coming couple of years. - Jeb Dunnuck, robertparker.com, 2014

  3. Lafite Rothschild Pauillac 2003
    WA100
    $1,224.98
    Availability:In Stock
    100 Points! The 2003 Lafite Rothschild comes as close to perfection as any of the great Lafites made over the past three decades (1982, 1986, 1996, 2000, 2005, 2008, 2009 and 2010). This sensational effort came in at 12.7% natural alcohol, it is made in the style of one of this estate’s great classics, the 1959. Composed of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color to the rim along with a luxurious bouquet of cedarwood, lead pencil shaving, white chocolate, cocoa and cassis. Fat, rich, opulent and full-bodied with low acidity and stunning seductiveness and complexity, this noble wine possesses a bountiful, generous, heady style. It is just coming into its plateau of maturity where it should hold for 20-25 years. This is one of the candidates for the wine of the vintage – make no mistake about that. - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

  6. Pax Cellars Syrah Kobler Family Vineyard 2003
    WS92
    WA92
    VM93
    $59.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93+ Points!  (includes 10% co-fermented viognier; from a very cool Green Valley vineyard farmed biodynamically) Saturated medium ruby. Distinctly Northern Rhone- like aromas of blackberry, minerals, gunflint and violet. Supple on entry, then quite suave in the middle, with spicy, peppery black fruit flavors nicely framed by harmonious acidity. Impressively deep, structured wine that really builds toward the back end. This has the lowest pH (3.67) and lowest alcohol (14.8%) of any of the Pax 2003 syrahs.  Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media, May 2005

  7. Pax Syrah Castelli-Knight Ranch 2003
    WA96
    $69.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points! The 2003 Syrah Castelli-Knight Ranch (which utilizes 75% stems) is primordial, broodingly backward, black/purple-colored . Despite its freshness and vivaciousness, this is a monster Syrah with superb purity, huge, chewy flavors, and notes of graphite, crushed rocks, pepper, and creme de cassis. It should drink well for 10-12 years. - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #162, December 2005

  8. Pax Cellars Syrah Alder Springs The Terraces 2003
    WA96
    $69.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points! Blueberries, brioche, and exotic litchi and flower aromas emerge from the 2003 Syrah Alder Springs Vineyard The Terraces (95% Syrah and 5% Viognier aged in 100% new French oak). It possesses a tannic structure and firmness along with gorgeous fruit, purity, and an intensity that must be tasted to be believed. whereas It will need 1-3 years of bottle age, and should last much longer than the Alder Springs. - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #162, December 2005

  9. Pax Cellars Syrah Obsidian Vineyard 2003
    WA96
    $59.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points! From Knight’s Valley, the 2003 Syrah Obsidian (named for the area’s Obsidian soils) boasts a dense blue/purple color in addition to big, opulent, concentrated, heady aromatics, massive body, and abundant amounts of blackberry fruit intermixed with licorice and flowers. It’s a gorgeous Syrah that needs a bit more time in the bottle to strut its stuff. - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #162, December 2005

  10. Meroi Merlot Dominin 2003
    VM92
    Special Price $99.98 Regular Price $149.98
    Availability:In Stock
    92 Points!  The 2003 Rosso Dominim is another outstanding effort. This old-vine Merlot (with a small amount of Refosco) reveals exotic aromatics and a richly concentrated core of fruit. With air gorgeous notes of licorice, sweet herbs, minerals chocolate and coffee beans come to the fore, adding further complexity to this highly individual, enveloping wine. This offers outstanding balance. Only the tannins could use a little more polish, but that is most likely a function of the super-hot vintage. It will be a fascinating wine to follow in future vintages. The Dominim is made from a selection of the estate's best fruit. In 2003 there are 900 bottles of this wine.  Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media, October 2007

    The 2003 Pinot Noir Three Sisters Vineyard shows sweet blueberry, raspberry, cherry, smoky, gamy, and autumnal/forest vegetation-like notes. With superb fruit, full body, admirable richness and acidity, and a fleshy, long mouthfeel, this stunning Pinot is just becoming approachable and drinkable. It should last for 10-15 years. - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #174, 2007

  12. Latour Pauillac 2003
    JS100
    WA100
    $899.98
    Availability:In Stock
    100 Points! I loved this wine from the barrel and was fortunate enough to be able to purchase a small quantity, enjoying every bottle I have had. A profound example of Chateau Latour, the full-bodied, opulent 2003 is already performing well at age eleven, which is somewhat atypical. The pH is a relatively high 3.8, which also indicates low acidity. The wine is very ripe, but not over-ripe, offers great freshness, and lots of creme de cassis and camphor as well as hints of blackberries and chocolate. Dense, thick and unctuously textured, this staggering Latour is undeniably the most sumptuous, opulent wine made here since the 1982 or 1961. - Robert Parker

  13. Araujo Estate Syrah Eisele Vineyard 2003
    WA94
    $99.98
    Availability:In Stock
    Although production is tiny (300 cases), Araujo’s Eisele Vineyard Syrah is an ageworthy effort that is generally co-fermented with a small amount of Viognier (around 4%), and aged in French oak (50% new). The 2003 Syrah Eisele Vineyard reveals a wonderful blackberry, chocolate, and peppery-scented nose along with good subtlety as well as authoritative richness, power, and purity. It is a stunning Syrah that should last a decade even though it will provide immediate gratification. - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #168

  14. Araujo Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard 2003 Magnum
    WA96
    $699.98
    Availability:In Stock
    Absolutely superb, this 2003 is drinking beautifully. This blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot from the famous hillside Eisele Vineyard in northeast Napa Valley tips the scales at 14.5% natural alcohol. Gorgeously fresh black currant and black raspberry notes intermixed with spring flowers and forest floor jump from the glass from one of the most aromatically complex wines of the vintage. Medium to full-bodied with...
