Good medium ruby-purple. High-pitched, perfumed aromas of raspberry liqueur, eucalyptus oil, cola and mint; at once resiny and quite subtle. Then juicy, intensely flavored and densely packed, with superb inner-mouth energy. A real essence of black fruits. Powerful and very long, with lingering notes of violet and licorice; the tannins spread out to coat the teeth. Cabral used only three- and four-year-old barrels for the 2001 zins. (ST)
Zesty and still lively, delivering explosive pepper and boysenberry aromas that lead to rich, layered cherry tart flavors, with notes of cinnamon and smoke. Aging beautifully. (Web-2011)
The only 2001 Zinfandel I tasted was the Forchini Vineyard North Flats, a classic example with 15.8% alcohol. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a big, peppery, briery bouquet displaying notes of underbrush and licorice in its viscous, fleshy, full-throttle texture. (RP)
Fairly bright, with tangy cherry and plum flavors. Tannins are silky, despite the brightness, with tea, coffee, spice and peppery notes on the finish. Long, lush and exciting to the end.
