International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 114

($60) Deep ruby-red. Aromas of blackberry, currant, licorice and graphite. Juicy and hard-edged, with somewhat intrusive acids and hints of mint and herbs. Finishes with firm, oak-driven tannins and a strong torrefaction note of bitter chocolate.

The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa has hit its plateau of maturity where it should rest for another decade. Sweet, juicy, sexy black and red currant fruit intertwined with licorice, earth and subtle oak aromas jump from the glass of this dense plum/purple-colored wine. Attractive, round, fleshy and voluptuously textured, this fully mature, loaded 2001 can be drunk now and over the next ten years.

This wine started a bit jumbled, with spiky alcohol, meddled fruit and a tight and tannic finish. After about an hour and a half the wine opened nicely and revealed great balance, depth and concentration. Nose: Blackberry, cherry, plum, a tad of pencil lead, and finally some sweet oak highlight the aromas. A spicy cedar and clove note accents the finish. Palate: A bit jumbled at first, the wine came together well after an hour and a half open. Blackberry, cherry, spicy plum, full and expansive flavors fan out over the palate, seducing the taster to come back for more. The tannins are fine from aging, but are resilient and firm on the finish, framing this great wine's palate experience. Drink over the next 3 years.

Spectacular. Jammy, dark berry fruit, medium to full bodied, nice smooth tannin. Need more of this...

Dark purple in color. Tobacco and cedar on the nose. The wine is a delicious blend of blackberry fruit and mocha flavors on the palate. I have had this wine for over the past five years and believe that it has reached it's peak and will continue to drink well for another 5+ year.
