I've had mutliple bottles of this vintage (2003). Some I have appreciated more than others, probably had to do with the food pairings as much as anything. I've paired it with lamb chops, a meaty paella (chorizo, chicken, and shrimp), steak (NY strip), game birds (chukar and quail), and pasta with a bolognese sauce. For me it worked best with the lamb chops. Nice complement to many food pairings; versital. I found it to be somewhat acidic, full of tannins, well balanced, with a sleek finish.
