2003 Counterpoint Estate Cabernet Sonoma Mountain
The 2003 Counterpoint displays a fine violet rim with a black core -- typical of our mountain vineyard, that presages its brightness and depth. The long and mostly cool growing season produced aromas of great finesse and complex flavors. Compared to its predecessor, the exuberant 2002, this vintage is decidedly more restrained. Its nose is a lovely mélange of violets, dark cherries, and a haunting citrus note almost reminiscent of malbec, which develops after the bottle has been open for a few hours. In short, it's an inviting and pretty wine with a supple, but intense, core.
