    The 2001 Profile is an excellent wine, but recent vintages are even stronger. The fully mature 2001, a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, exhibits a dense plum/garnet color as well as a sweet perfume of tobacco leaf, incense, roasted herbs, and red and black currants. Good opulence and a lush texture result in an attractive attack and mid-palate. Then the wine softens and seems fully mature. However, in a cold cellar it will last another 7-10 years.

    Serves up lots of complex flavors, from its creamy oak and ripe berry flavors to hints of mint, cedar, sage and dill. It comes together nicely on the finish, too, with bright, vivid flavors. 6,500 cases made.

    Color and body was good. The clarity was a little cloudy. Light fruit and oak flavors from start to finish. Not complex, not going to get better. It was good but I was expecting more.
