2003 Elderton Command  Single Vineyard Shiraz 2003 Barossa Valley

From the very good 2003 vintage and scoring 94/100 Parker points "While the deep plum/ruby/garnet-tinged 2003 Shiraz Command is slightly less nuanced than the 2002, it is just as powerful and full-bodied, offering copious quantities of fruit, glycerin, tannin, and muscle. This chewy, rich offering appears to be on a faster evolutionary track than its 2002 counterpart. Give it another 2-3 years of bottle age, and consume it over the following 12-15." Drink now - 2021.

2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Sixtine 2003 Cuvee de Vatican

From the outstanding 2003 vintage and scoring 95/100 Parker points,"A great 2003 that is aging at a glacial pace, the 2003 Cuvee du Vatican Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Sixtine is a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre and the rest assorted varieties. Aged in 30% new barrel and the balance in foudre, it certainly possesses a modern slant, yet easily holds on to its southern Rhone roots. Youthful and lively, with big black currant, steak tartar, white chocolate, truffle and graphite on the nose, it flows seamlessly onto the palate and deliver layers of fruit, beautiful purity and perfectly ripe tannin that emerge on the finish.

2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Chante le Merle Vieilles Vignes 2003 Les Bosquet des Papes

From the outstanding 2003 vintage, and scoring 91/100 Parker points,"Beautifully traditional and classic, with plenty of seaweed wrapper, herbed game, truffle, garrigue and sweet kirsch and blackberry-styled fruit, the 2003 Bosquet des Papes Chateauneuf du Pape Chante Le Merle Vieilles Vignes is medium-bodied, clean, balanced and has solid focus and length on the finish. In a great drinking spot, with mature fruit, yet a core of sweet fruit, it should be consumed over the coming 4-6 years or so. Given the balance, this will certainly drink nicely beyond that point, yet I like it now while the mature profile is balanced by notable fruit. Well-done, and worth seeking out for a mature, well-made Chateauneuf du Pape drinking experience." Drink now - 2021

2003 Chateauneuf Du Pape 2003 Chateau de Beaucastel

From the outstanding 2003 vintage and scoring 92+/100 Parker points, "The 2003 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape turned out as well as I could have hoped and is certainly an outstanding wine, deep ruby/purple with a tight but promising nose of black fruits, loamy, earthy notes intermixed with pepper, smoke, licorice, and dried herbs. The wine is somewhat closed in the mouth (but it had been bottled 30 days prior to my visit), has full bodied, moderately high, slightly rustic tannins, but big-impact flavors with plenty of texture, density, and purity. Give this wine 3-5 years of bottle age, and drink it over the following 20 years." Drink now - 2029.

From the very good 2003 vintage and scoring 92-4/100 Parker points, this super red wine "A fruit-driven, exotic, in-your-face cuvee, the 2003 Shiraz Stonehorse (which spends time in old oak) does not possess the structure found in the Old Vine The Hammer. It offers lovely black cherry and blackberry fruit as well as medium to full body, but not as much espresso roast, vanilla, or tannin as the '02 Old Vine." Drink now - 2019.

(named after the Mitolo family’s three children) exhibits aromas of lead pencil shavings, blackberries, blueberries, cassis, licorice, new oak, and scorched earth. This complex 2003 comes across as a hypothetical blend of a great La Mission-Haut-Brion from Bordeaux and a Rhone Valley Hermitage such as Chapoutier’s Pavillon. Everything is seamlessly integrated into this tour de force in winemaking. It should age for 10-15+ years." Drink now - 2019.

From the outstanding 2003 vintage, this stunning wine scores 93+/100 Parker points and "The 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve des Vieilles Vignes comes close to equaling the brilliant 1998 or 2000. Dark ruby with hints of purple, it is a serious, tannic and structured wine with considerable muscle, some elevated tannin, but plenty of sweet black raspberry and black cherry fruit offered in a full-bodied, well-delineated, structured style. The wine’s persistence on the palate augurs well for the future. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 12-15 years. Very impressive!" Drink now - 2023.

2003 Dom Perignon Vintage Champagne 2003

This stunning Champagne scores 94+/100 Parker points and "The 2003 Dom Perignon is a big, broad shouldered wine. It does not have the seductiveness of the '00, nor the power of the '02. It is instead very much its own wine. In 2003 Geoffroy elected to use more Pinot Noir than is typically the case, and that comes through in the wine’s breath and volume. The 2003 is a big, powerful Champagne that will require quite a bit of time to shed some of its baby fat. The trademark textural finesse is there, though. I expect the 2003 to be a highly divisive Champagne because of its extreme personality, but then again, many of the world’s legendary wines were made from vintages considered freakish at the time. The 2003 is an atypically, rich, powerful, vinous Dom Perignon loaded with fruit, structure and personality. It is not for the timid, but rather it is a wine for those who can be patient. No one has a crystal ball, but personally I will not be surprised if in 20 years’ time the 2003 is considered an iconic Champagne." Drink now - 2038.
