Chateau Cantemerle 2003

The very hot 2003 Bordeaux vintage has led to some disappointments, but this wine is not one of them.  The wine had an attractive aroma of ripe, almost jammy, fruit, and a cigar box fragrance.  The palate had good length and structure with perhaps a touch of dried tea leaves.  Very enjoyable.  89 points.
