Tasting Notes

Robert Parker: 99 Points
Wine Advocate #207 Jun 2013 Robert M. Parker, Jr. 99 Drink: 2013 - 2033 $350-$425 (280) My favorite of this trio is the 2003 Le Desir, a Sonoma County St.-Emilion look-alike made from 41% Cabernet Franc, 44% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Malbec (14.3% alcohol). Hints of graphite, mulberries, black cherries, black currants, licorice, dusty loamy soil, truffles and spice emerge from this strikingly fragrant, complex 2003. Full-bodied with formidable intensity, sweet tannin and a long, layered finish that lasts for nearly 50 seconds, this is a tour de force and a compelling 2003. Accessible now, it should continue to drink well for two decades. Bravo! Made by Bordelais winemaker Pierre Seillan, these may be the longest lived red wines in the Jackson family portfolio. All three are sourced from high-elevation Sonoma vineyards owned by the Jacksons, primarily in Bennett Valley, Chalk Hill, Alexander Valley and Knight’s Valley.
