Beautiful scents... The 2003 IX Proprietary Red Wine a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon 31% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and a dollop of Petit Verdot demonstrates how fabulous the fruit from the estate vineyard can be. Beautiful scents of crushed rocks spring flowers licorice charcoal blackberries and cassis are stunningly pure and complex. This opulent intense well-balanced compelling full-bodied wine appears to have softened considerably over the last year. It can be drunk now or cellared for 20-25 years.

Wonderfully sweet and dense with a superripe suggestion of maple syrup and a note of hot rocks. Finishes with huge chewy but well-buffered tannins and a lingering note of caramel. Perhaps the least lively today of these 2003s but winemaker Aubert notes that the 2003 vintage in general here brought higher-than-average acidity.
