The flavor of our wine is reminiscent of the Northern Rhône in its red berry and white pepper aromas, but it has more extract and body. It has intense flavor and deep color but, unlike some other red wines, where big color usually means big tannin, our wine is not harshly tannic so it drinks well when it is young. We expect it to age well.
To us, the 2003 seems very much like our 1998 was at the same stage in its life. It’s a very spicy wine with more white pepper than we’ve noted in any previous vintage. We won’t attempt to give you detailed tasting notes because, as Sean Thackrey says, that would be like reviewing your own movie. And besides, we find it agonizingly difficult to describe our own wine. We’ll gladly leave that to others. Our job is to get the flavor of our vineyard into the bottle. We picked the grapes on September 18 and 28, fermented them in T-bins and punched down by hand. The fermen-tation finished in ten days and we pressed the wine one day later. The wine was aged in four-times used François Frères barrels for 18 months, during which it was racked three times, and bottled on June 21, 2005. As always, the wine is unfiltered and all from our own vineyard. 770 cases made.
