The 2003 is a round, gorgeous Fratta. The heat of the vintage has robbed the wine of some aromatic complexity, yet a surprising level of freshness remains. I don't see the 2003 ever developing into a super-complex wine, but it will drink splendidly over the coming years. 2003 is among the vintages where the harvest took place in August; the others are 2000 and 2001. The 2003 Fratta is 77% Cabernet Sauvignon and 23% Merlot.
