International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 114

($80) Good ruby-red color. Vibrant aromas of blackberry, violet, tobacco, cedar and chocolatey oak. Sweet, supple and silky, with a burnished oak element and broad, fine tannins. Distinctly creamy in the middle, even on the soft side. Not quite as gripping as it appeared to be from barrel a year ago, but aromatic and suave. The cabernet franc was less potent in 2001 than in 2002, notes Viader, who told me that her wine is always under 14%.

Blackish crimson ? a very deep colour. Tarry nose. Complete and rich. Sweet, round and full. Quite a blockbuster though with a neat dry finish. Exceptionally persistent. Quite alcoholic but still well balanced. Round and powerful though more jagged than the 2002.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 195

Displaying loads of complexity, this blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Cabernet Franc has a nose of bay leaf, black currants, cedar in a very perfumed, medium-bodied, quintessentially elegant style. It is not a far-fetched comparison to call this Napa Valley Cheval Blanc, although that wine is a nearly equal part blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon rather than Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Dark plum/purple, pure, and close to full maturity, this wine should continue to age nicely for at least another decade or more.

Graceful and complex, with layers of spice, dried berry, mocha, roasted herb and tobacco, smooth on the finish, with ripe integrated tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. 2001 California Cabernet blind retrospective (June 2011). Drink now through 2018. 4,800 cases made.

Color: Black, dark purple...almost inky. Nose: A black currant bonanza! Spicy cedar and some funk hung out around the massive black currant perfume. Palate: Surprise, lots of black currants, some black cherry, sweet tobacco, very full bodied. Everything is in balance for such a large wine. Still youthful. The finish was long and slightly one dimensional...it almost belly flopped on the palate as opposed to fanning out.
