RP 91 points: The 2003 Cabernets is a blend of 63% CS, 20% Shiraz, 9% Petit Verdot & 8% Merlot. Deep garnet colored, it gives a really toasty, cedary, cigar box laced nose with pronounced aromas of menthol, ripe plums, mulberries & spice box. The medium-bodied palate is elegant & well structured with very crisp acid, medium-firm fine-grained tannins & a very long, layered finish. Drink it now to 2017+.
