Girard Winery Artistry Napa Valley 2003
The 2003 vintage is a bright garnet colored wine with aromas of kirsch, red currant, red plum, lavender and allspice. There are also hints of tobacco, grilled walnuts and campfire smoke. On the palate, this silky-textured wine offers a full-mouth, medium bodied feel. The chewy tannins are very well integrated, making the wine elegant and approachable at an early age. There are multiple layers to this complex blend that reveal themselves through decanting or by giving the wine time to open in the glass.
Big nose does not forecast the very pleasant soft, smooth introduction to the palate. Somewhat sweet red berry flavors—maybe some red plum--are subtle enough to distract. Some hints of clove spice. Still some stiff tannins found at the back of the palate. A very easy to drink. I wish I had more of this one.
