Hello!

Has anyone tried this bottle? Any thoughts? My friend recommends it and there is a fabulous price at local store.

Thanks!

    Have not had the '03, but I've enjoyed past vintages very much.

      I've really liked it in past vintages, not had the '03. 2003 is a good vintage for Pinot (less so for Cab). If there is a 'fabulous' price on it, I would buy first, ask questions later.

        The '04 is drinking well too!. Had some last week. Lots of dark fruit and mild spice flavors. Sells as high as $60, but I see some online stores at under $40. That wide a range amazes me.

          i had some last week and was underwhelmed. especially for the price. i'm in boston, so don't know what you'd pay, but i'll wait till the next vintage comes out. i have liked it in the past, but pinot prices are getting ridiculous. they're going the way of napa cabs.
