I wish I still had some of these 01 Jerichos. This wine tastes like Mouton Rothschild in a great year. One of the best 01 Cabs. I want to try this wine now to see how it’s holding up and how it’s developed. This was when I noticed the alcohol levels getting higher on Cabs but no hotness or alcohol flavors here. This has it all. the layers of complexity, the creme de cassis, lead pencil and perfectly ripened dark fruit. Very well balanced and fun to drink.

A fun side by side with this and the ‘02 Diamond Mtn. Surprisingly, I thought this had quite a bit more tannin. Whereas the Diamond Mtn had more of a sweet and muddled core, this was dusty and more herbal. Bayleaf, currant, underripe blackberries and some tar.

I purchased this on release and was sadly disappointed with the muddled and stewed characteristic if the fruit.

Good wine, mellow and showing well. Not as structured as other 2001, but in a nice window today. Black cherry, baking spices, apple peel, subtle but full tannins. Drink up!

Finally back out in the Friday Happy Hour dating scene with my dime-piece. Nice ambiance, good food and convo, and a new wine to try out. While not as jammy and full bodied as we are use to, it low acidity makes it a nice easy sip.

2002 vintage in January 2021. This is in a great place. Fully mature with big red fruit and balancing earth. Fruit is fully mature and developed some additional characteristics but still very hedonistic for a wine this age. At a peak/plateau with stuffing to keep going but why wait? Do it!
