Gould Campbell 2003

Release Notes

The Gould Campbell 2003 Vintage has lifted blue-violets aromas on the nose. Rich and deep purple colour right up to the rim. Delicious ripe plum and black cherry flavours assault the taste buds. Black pepper and spice, coupled with hints of chocolate and coffee, all held together by balanced acidity and rich powerful tannins.  Superb lingering aftertaste. The Gould Campbell 2003 Vintage has all the necessary facets and characteristics to ensure that it will age impeccably for decades to come.

Tasting Notes

Loads of licorice and berries on the nose, follow through to a full-bodied palate, medium sweetness and masses of fruit.  Long finish. Very layered. What a deal.

Score: 95/100

This may be one of the “lesser” Symington brands, but this Port shows very well.  It is a beautifully perfumed wine, fragrant with ripe fruit.  Balanced, with dusty tannins, there is a touch of chocolate to give richness, and at the end, the tannins turn dry and firm.

Score: 91/100

2005 tasting note year

Coffee, black fruits, and graphite can be detected in the almost Pauillac-like nose of the dark purple-colored 2003 Gould Campbell Vintage Port.  On the palate, this forward medium to full-bodied wine displays chocolate, tar, blackberry, molasses, and plum flavors in a slightly raw yet harmonious format. It has excellent depth, a friendly (if simple) nature, and will be approachable earlier than most top-echelon vintage ports.

Score: 87/100

2005 tasting note year

Displaying delightful scents of plum with a smoky and roasted note. The GC offers a viscous and powerful wine with semisweet, blackberry and currant fruit along with a hint of vanilla and licorice. It is a boisterous, intense young Port with monstrous mouth puckering tannins and a lingering aftertaste…This Vintage Port should improve for two to three decades.

Score: 92/100
