I’m not a fan of the 2003 vintage but this was really good. No stewed fruit, very elegant and expressive. Drinking great young

Earth and fruit, with notes of flowers and incense. 2003 but still fresh.

Tasted side by side with the 2000 Harlan. Extraordinary smoothness and delicate balance of fruit and tannin.

Not stored great. Classic Cheval favors but overblown, fat and lush red fruit, potter's soil, forest floor, new leather, lush tannin. Really low acid.

Pleasantly surprised everyone seemed to really feel like these wines were never going to age, but here we are and they are tasting great. Wonder what another 10-15 will show.
