This estate has been producing impressive wines since the mid-1990s, and much of the credit goes to the talented proprietress, Sophie Schyler. The 2003 Kirwan is a beauty and gets my vote as the finest Kirwan made in the last quarter century. A beautiful bouquet of forest floor, plums, licorice, crème de cassis, and smoke emerges from this opaque ruby/purple-tinged effort. Medium-bodied with plenty of sweet tannin in addition to low acidity, it leaves a beautiful tactile impression that is concentrated yet fresh and lively. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2022+.

Classy aromas of blackberry, Indian spice and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with wonderfully integrated tannins and a long, caressing finish. A real beauty here. Best after 2010. 5,665 cases made.

Kirwan has been transformed in the past decade or so. Today, as with this 2003, it produces smooth, rich polished wines, with firm wood but never too much. Acidity completes the balance.
