Aromas of blackberry, chocolate and toasted oak follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a long, caressing finish. Refined and silky for the vintage. Best after 2007. 3,330 cases made.

91 points, Wine Spectator (Jul 2006)

An attractive blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the dense ruby/purple-hued 2003 La Couspaude exhibits a big, smoky, oaky nose, loads of sweet black currant and cherry fruit, medium body, and abundant superficial charm. However, there is not much depth or persistence. Nevertheless, it will provide enjoyable drinking over the next 5-7 years.
