International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 116

(14. 6% alcohol). Full red-ruby. Very ripe nose offers roasted meat, smoke, tobacco, underbrush and mint. Superripe, silky and lush, with a slightly roasted fruit character. Not a hugely complex or deep vintage for Ornellaia, and likely to evolve relatively quickly, but the wine's uncommonly lush, velvety texture is more than worth the price of admission. Strong cherry fruit emerged with aeration. Almost California-like in its opulence and early appeal. Finishes with big but ripe tannins that are finer than those of the '97.

Very dark crimson. Not the most intense nose ? quite mineral but extremely opulent. Napa rides again! Very sweet. Black cherries. At the moment all I can sense is intense sweetness plus a bit of fine tannin. Quite alcoholic. 14.5% CS:M:CF 65:30:5 157,000 bottles

Wine Advocate Author: Daniel Thomases Issue: 152

The 2000 Ornellaia is notably different than the 1999, less concentrated in color due to the high temperatures of the growing season, significantly more alcoholic, but with much sweet black currant fruit, velvety and balanced flavors, and a round, smooth finish. Rather forward for a wine of its type, it should nonetheless provide fine drinking until 2016-2018.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Lots of currant and spice, with hints of fresh herb. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a pretty balance. Delicate finish. Slightly austere. Give it time. A slightly held-back style for Ornellaia. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. 12,980 cases made.

Daniel B Trust Rating: 99 Tasted On: 02/01/2005 Drink Dates: 2008-2015+

Translucent red/black colored wine. A reticent nose of light oak, cherry, and cedar. Much more explosive on the palate with lots of lush fruit, excellent acidity, moderate but smooth tannin, and good length. A predominately Cabernet based wine with some Merlot added.
