Incredible amount of tannin. Heavy on the Merlot in the blend. Dry and mouth smacking. Opens up with time if you let it sit. Wonderful notes of oak to an overall dark berry taste. Medium bodied and complex.

WOW! This wine has reached it's pinnacle I believe and I am so glad I found this rogue bottle. Deep, rich and well balanced while being super concentrated. This is a powerful, yet graceful cab and it drinking exquisitely right now. If you can find it, drink it now!

Great fruit, earthiness and mineral flavors. Blueberry pops nicely.

Decanted 30 min. Nose of earth, smoke and blueberry fruit. Attack and mid-palate are similar, with a tar component appearing as well. I love the earthiness and big blueberry flavors. This went very well with a vegetarian pizza. One of my favorite offerings from Stolpman, I'm extremely disappointed they discontinued this cuvee. The latest release of their Estate Syrah has 15% Grenache, so I'm *hoping* it will be similar to this wine (especially since I'm down to my last bottle!).

Popped and poured. Nose of earth, blueberry and tar, following to the palate. Has that distinctive Stolpman earthiness that can be overpowering, but, as with the Syrah, is VERY nice here. For sub-$20, this is a killer wine. Must buy more, as Stolpman has discontinued this cuvee. Outstanding - 91 points.

Had this twice in the last 2-3 weeks and enjoyed. Nice, complex, what you would expect from a Napa Cab, nothing extraordinary but very solid.

La Croix Chevaliere VdP d´Oc 2003 - Laroche : La Croix Chevaliere VdP d´Oc 2003 - Rotwein von LarocheDiese wunderbare Cuvée wird nur in besonders guten Jahren vinifiziert. Aromen der Brombeeren, Johannisbeeren und Bitterschokolade verwöhnen gemeinsam mit einer feinen Vanillenote den Gaumen. Der Wein wird 18 Monate in französischer Eiche ausgebaut und anschließend unfiltriert in die Flasche gefüllt. Nach weiteren acht Monaten wird der La Croix Chevaliere VdP d´Oc 2003 erst auf den Markt gebracht. Dieser Rotwein ist besonders zu kräftigen Wildgerichten mit Backpflaumensauce, geschmorten Rinderbäckchen mit Sternanis oder zu einem kräftigen Châteaubriand zu empfehlen.Weingut: LarocheLand: FrankreichRegion: Languedoc - FaugèresRebsorte: Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, MourvèdreInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,0 Vol.%Fassreife: in Barriques gereift (18 Monate)Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18°CLagerfähigkeit: 7 - 10 Jahre ab Jahrgang Suche nach Rebsorten > Rote Rebsorten > Grenache

Red wine - 2003 - Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Chateauneuf-du-Pape Magnum - France - Region: Rh


External Review

Leathery and earthy, with some heavier, muddled characteristics that reflect the vintage. Overall, this wine is not on the same level as the superior 2004, but as it opens it shows a willing mouthfeel and finishing flavors of red currant and cranberry. If you own this along with the 2004, drink this one before the other.

Dense and saturated, with deep purple fruit and nuances of chocolate and smoky oak. An engaging wine with an absolutely compelling finish.

This is really beautiful and balanced with berry and light vanilla character. Full-bodied densely balanced yet refined and caressing. Beautiful wine. From American owner Colin Ferrenbach. Best after 2006. 4 830 cases made. Wine Spectator.

Tasting Notes:

"Rich and bold with intense flavors of chocolate dipped black fruit, accompanied by notes of sweet oak. Firm and structured ripe tannins lead to a lengthy, fruit driven finish. "
