Amazing aromas of blueberries, black cherries, spices, sage, thyme, and violets emanate from the glass of the 2003 Chaleur Estate (red). Though this wine is densely packed with candied blackberries as well as cassis, it loses none of its elegance and charm. Extremely well-focused and detailed, it also reveals great length in its seamless finish. Drink it over the next 15 years.
Red-ruby color. Highly aromatic, claret-like nose offers cassis, redcurrant, maple sugar, herbs and a leafy nuance. Ripe, powerful and intensely flavored; this really expands in the mouth, gaining in sweetness and dimension with aeration. Finishes with broad, lush tannins and excellent length. Not at all a late-picked style of wine, and built to age.
