"The bouquet on the Termanthia 2003 is gentle, approachable and perhaps a little “flat,” especially when compared to the previous vintage. In some ways, it is reminiscent of some Right Bank Bordeaux of that same year. The palate is rich and full-bodied with eucalyptus-tinged red berry fruit, sage, cloves and white pepper. It exhibits better freshness and balance than the aromatics suggest and is probably superior to a lot of Right Banks in this vintage. Though the 2002 demonstrates more vitality, the 2003 appears to be maturing well, even if the palate is leaving the aromatics behind. Drink now-2018. The following year was marked by a gradual increase in summer temperatures with veraison during the second week of August and finishing on the last week. There was a strong accumulation of sugar with large diurnal variations in temperature that fell to around 10 degrees at night." - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate #206 (Apr 24, 2013)
