Oak and ruby currants in the nose. Slightly browning at the edges. Lovely deep, soft plush fruit. Menthol, some vanilla notes and resolved oak. Yum

Pulled the cork and the juice smelled and tasted DELI$H ~ I’ve had many great wines, plenty I’ve rated higher, but the pull-n-pour instant gratification AND appropriate drinking time doesn’t happen often ~ it will age effortlessly for years but I’m not sure one “needs” to cellar more

Great clarity to the nose with dark berrries and a hint of plum on the nose. Really pure, balanced and translucent. Very good

2001 drinking really well but will not hurt laying down for a few more years. Great medium body: good fruit and nice long finish.
