The biggest and most full bodied wine of the evening was the Cos d'Estournel. From the hot 2003 vintage this also made it the youngest red of the evening. Big, irony, camp fire embers, black currants and cassis, toasty and well integrated oak buffer the wine. Time has peeled back some of that concentration revealing the heat that stuck out to me as the one big thing out of place. In the context of the vintage this might be OK but it turned me off. Good, but disappointing especially considering how critics went out of their way to speak of its lack of signs of heat.

Love Cos, not much of a fan of the '03's though, I'm not so sure the '03's will ever be a vintage that in 15 years we will be looking fondly on, just too much overripe(cooked) fruit character that will only maderize as time goes on.

Good but tannic and closed. Short finish. No nose.

Still has another 10+ years and is amazing. Cannot wait to try again next year.
