The other-worldly 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Peterson Family Vineyard is ... to die for! Given its quality, the price is surprisingly realistic, considering how many California North Coast mediocrities fetch three digit prices. This opaque purple-colored Cabernet exhibits wonderfully sweet aromas of melted licorice intermixed with cedar wood, black currant liqueur, chocolate, and spice box. This full-throttle, unctuously-textured, dense, broad, pure, impeccably balanced, expansive 2001 is mouth-coating in its richness and intensity. It can be drunk with great pleasure, or cellared for 15-20 years. Wow! (RP)
A fabulous young wine. Ultrarich and harmonious, with ripe, supple tannins wrapped around a delicious core of currant, blackberry, vanilla, espresso bean and mocha, gliding to a long, sensual finish with lots of rich, intricate flavors. (JL)
Medium ruby. Superripe, brooding aromas of cassis and espresso; less expressive today than the Merlot. Then sweet, fat and supple in the mouth, with powerful cassis and chocolate flavors and a light herbal component. Comes across as more roasted and a bit less vibrant today than the Merlot, with tougher tannins. But this, too, is impressively concentrated, and a few years of additional bottle aging should bring it into better harmony. (ST) 90+
