Deep, bright ruby-red. Cherry, licorice and smoked meat at the outset; then exploded with raspberry fruit. Lush, smooth and silky, with lovely inner-mouth perfume. Highly complex flavors of raspberry, minerals, bitter chocolate and smoky oak convey an extraordinary sweetness without any excess weight. Expands wonderfully on the extremely long, aromatic finish, which features noble, palate-dusting tannins. From the recorked bottle, the wine again began with dominant smoky, tarry torrefaction notes, and within minutes was taken over by red berries and flowers. More classic than the '03, but the 2003 may be even richer.
* Editors' Choice * Barely a step down from the more rare and pricey Pingus, the ’01 Flor should fly off store shelves and restaurant wine lists. It’s that good, starting with the intoxicating nose and moving through the pure palate and onto the marvelous finish. A wine that goes all the way, with spice, leather and mounds of rich, ripe fruit.
This generous red shows a plush texture, with plum and blackberry fruit flavors matched by chocolate oak notes and supported by ripe tannins. It matches concentration with focus, and stays balanced and fresh through the long, spicy finish.
The deep, smoky, unevolved but richly fruity 2001 Flor de Pingus reveals black cherry, berry, and earthy notes along with notions of barbecue spices and cigar smoke. Medium- to full-bodied and opulent, it is best consumed during its first decade of life.
