Chateau Phelan Segur, 2003, Saint-Estephe, Bordeaux

Chateau Phelan Segur, 2003, Saint-Estephe, Bordeaux 

Attractive deep red colour. Nice bouquet of berries mixed with smoke and spices (mainly peppers). Taste of smokey licorice, mix of plums and cherries. Slightly dry, but acceptable. Clean taste of mineral. Velvety tannins, decent acidity. Overall, smooth, velvety, rounded and balanced body. Structure is pretty weak and not able to last after an hour or so. Finishing is surprisingly short. Still a highly enjoyable wine, IMO. Definitely worth buying!
