Rio Red 2003 Redux

After we found the 2003 Rio Red in Jerry’s 7 vintage tasting to have TCA (corked) taint, I opened another one from our cellar. It was such a relief to see this wine as it should have been- Rich, ripe strawberry and black raspberry fruit, with minty rose and tobacco. The palate was young and bright, still fruit dominant in front, and a nice acid/tannin balance that begged for homemade pizza.
