  • Great wine, holding up well as of December 21 2014. It can lay down a bit longer, but highly recommend enjoying soon. We decanted close to two hours, but not necessary to wait that long. Paired perfect with a filet mignon.

  • Still holding at a solid 91 points. I tasted this 2008 and 2010 and gave 91 points then and still do.

    This wine has been drinking very well for several years but its rounding the corner. The nose is still vibrant with dark fruits, hints of vanilla, cassis and a mineral edge.

    On the palate the integration with fruits, tannin and alcohol is spot on. Leather, baking spices and that mineral edge is present and quite enjoyable.

    This was my last bottle and the 2001 vintage was a great run!

  • Tasted at the winery on the same day as having it at a restaurant. Go figure that it was the feature wine on the older menu today. I was concerned so decided to bring it to wine country for a group lunch. Drank paired with the 2008 and I was impressed with how well the 2001 held up. Just incredibly smooth and the tannin structure was truly impressive. It was a nice old world Bordeaux blend with a deep brown/reddish tone. Really integrated tannin structure and the fruit tasted terrific. Just a great well balance Cali Bordeaux.

    Impressive nose and great up front fruit. Still a few years if you still have them but I personally think the 01 is ready to drink and at its prime right now. Highly recommended
