...beautiful floral notes intermixed with deep crème de cassis, blackberry, blueberry. hints of licorice & graphite... multilayered, magnificent & majestic... shaping up to be a great classic... vague resemblance to Château Margaux. Bravo!
Another fabulous ‘01 Napa Cab. This beauty maintains a pleasing balance between the sheer power of its well-ripened cherry and blackberry fruit flavors, and an earthy quality grounded in firm tannins and good acidity...
Aromas of boysenberry, cassis, violet & sweet, chocolatey oak. Brighter and more sharply delineated than the 2002, with less obvious baby fat; offers a captivating combination of berry, spice & floral flavors. Very stylish, firmly tannic..
..Round and full and very gently handled. A real charmer because there is some delicacy there too. Still pretty youthful with those carefully managed tannins just in evidence. Some dried spices – an Indian market!
