Acts half its age, fresh as a daisy which is something to admire in this vintage. Easily another 20 years here. Probably much better in 5 years.

Sorry, no love for '03 in this region from me. Pruny and lacking in acid.

Delicious combination of savory and ripe fruit flavors- really lovely integration- the plush tannins and so little greenness may be the clue it is from 2003

Nice well balanced wine that is showing in its prime at 15 years old.

An interesting contrast to other 2003s, the Leoville las Cases has an impressive bouquet of blueberries and graphite, however, unlike other St Julien (Leoville Poyferre, for example), it is quite restrained in the mouth and not as sweet, but it is an elegant, compelling wine nonetheless.

Killer Wine Night. Lineup of 17 wines. Tasted blind. Theme was Old World Killer “B” (the letter “B” has to be the first letter in one of the proper nouns in the wine e.g., region, varietal, type, winery name, etc.)

Wine 15. dark chocolate nose. Lot of tannins. Espresso. Velvety.

Ok a 2003 I can love. Hard to go wrong with las cases but good dark fruit, light tannins and a long finish. Great stuff!
