The completeness of 2001, with its miraculous balance, is present in this wine. The acidity, ripe blackcurrants sit comfortably on top of dry tannins, the fleshiness of the fruit taking the edge off the tannins. It seems to bring out the structure, the fruit and the refreshing acidity of great Cabernet.
Sweet notions of plums, black currants, caramel, and spicy oak are provocative and alluring. Subtle but substantial, layered, and textured, with medium body as well as sexy, up-front flavors, low acidity, and ripe tannin, this beauty is among the most evolved and flamboyant of the appellation. Nevertheless, it should age well. (RP)
Bright ruby-red. Enticing aromas of redcurrant, leather, tobacco, smoke and mint. Silky but firm in the middle palate, with lovely cut and clarity. Sweet currant fruit complicated by leather and tobacco notes. Finishes firm and persistent.
Smoky and rich with lots of spice and berries. Medium- to full-bodied, with very good tannins with soft and silky texture and a medium finish. Not as impressive in bottle as barrel, but outstanding.
Still quite youthful crimson. Attractively scented. Lively and both juicy at first and then dry on the finish. Not forced. Very user friendly. Just a bit juicier than the Barton.
