Tasting Notes

The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon offers up aromas of cassis liqueur, graphite, toast, smoke, and camphor along with huge body, gorgeous sweetness as well as purity, a multilayered texture, and a colossal finish. I would opt for drinking it over the next 7-8 years, but keep one bottle back until age 12-15. There is so much here it is hard to believe this wine will collapse after 8-10 years of age. Interestingly, this 2003 does not appear to be quite as powerful or concentrated as the 2002s or 2001s, but that’s like splitting hairs. The evolution of this 2003 will be fascinating to follow.

Provenance

This collection is a small part of a 10,000+ bottle cellar that has been meticulously kept at perfect temperature and humidity. Iron Gate has personally known this client for 10 years and even assisted in originally setting up this cellar when it was originally built by one of the top wine cellar designers in Toronto. Inventory was managed with an eSommelier system and to say that ultimate, almost obsessive care was taken in storing these wines would be un understatement. The collector himself is well connected in the wine world and always purchased from top producers and/or futures. The sale is a result of a migration to Burgundy in his drinking habits.
