Churchill Porto Vintage 2003

Member Review by ryanopaz:

1st Grape, earth, mineral, and melon all on the nose. Big tannin, and acid with a rich chocolate character. Flavors of cherry(dried), and anise, though there is more there it is a rich and complex wine. 4/5 2nd Blue berry nose with wood, earth and melon on the palate. Firm big tannin and med-high acid. 4.5/5 [NR]

Churchill Vineyards:
Churchill County’s first vineyard was established in 2001 with ten different varieties of fine wine grapes seven miles south of Fallon, Nevada. Fallon is located in the high desert Lahontan Valley area. The climate is similar to that of Eastern Washington state. Churchill Vineyards is Nevada’s second licensed winery and first “Estate Winery.” In September 2004 Churchill Vineyards successfully created its first vintage of premium estate wines.

Full bodied, well balanced with deep jammy fruit.

Peppery aromas, with lots of crushed berries. Medium- to full-bodied, with light sweetness and a soft, round tannic structure. Not on the same level as the fabulous 2000. Best after 2010. 3,000 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Port wine from Douro in Portugal. 2003 Churchill's Vintage Porto 375ml
