Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, April 2006

"While rich and dense, the medium to full-bodied 2003 Trotanoy is also hard, tannic, and in need of 3-5 years of bottle age. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by sweet scents of licorice, road tar, earth, and black cherries. Rich and concentrated with moderately high tannin”

Wine Advocate, Robert Parker : 90/100
