93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2003

($50-$65) Deep red-ruby. Explosive nose combines raspberry, roasted currant, grilled nuts and exotic spices. Rich, sexy, silky and full in the mouth, with expressive flavors of black raspberry, game, smoke and truffle. Finishes with strong but suave tannins and excellent length. St. Julien

Had this with some friends with a great roast beef dinner, was the 3rd bottle of the night. Great wine can't wait to try the 05 in about 5-7 years.

Dark purple. Nose of cedar, spice, tobacco & leather. Tight, concentrated, big and tannic with a long finish. Fruit emerges with air time, showing cherry and cassis with mineral accents. Obviously needs more time but should be great in 5+ years.
