Actually, 3.4 stars. Color, this wine has an OKAY color, nothing spectacular really. On the nose, pencil shreds, yes! There a lot of pencil shreds going on here, wet stones, sweet tobacco, dried leaves, and a smell of (swimming pool!), very thin, a hint of blueberries. Midpalate, the first thing I notice here is that this wine is thin! It has a decent complexity, pencil shreds still vibrant, some blueberries coming through. Finish, this wine fills the mouth, acceptable acidity, rough tannins (not harsh though!), considerably long finish, not very pleasant. Overall, this wine is still well balanced. Taking into account that 2003 was a hot vintage in Bordeaux and not really that good, I think this is an acceptable effort compared to the other 2003 Bordeauxs. I have to emphasize that this wine is really thin in the mouth now, so I wouldn't recommend that you put it away for a long time. I am 91 on this effort. Happy drinking!
