    December 4, 2019 - Gaja White Truffle Dinner (Osteria Langhe - Chicago IL): Served alongside the 1998, both double decanted a few hours in advance. Lots of powerful black and red cherry with background spice and floral notes. Less complex vs the 1998 but clearly more powerful. I preferred the 1998, but most others liked this 2001 more.

    December 4, 2019 - Black cherry with intense floral notes. Firm tense dark red fruits with nice zip. Lively and bright with nice cherry flavors. A tad dry and quicker finish, but quite good.

    October 19, 2019 - Slow ox’ed for approx 3 hours. Nose of brown sugar upon uncorking. Decanted for another hour at Osteria Mozza. Both nose and palate were more muted than expected. But the quality was certainly there.

    October 11, 2019 - The nose reveals, candied, ruby, stewed fruits of; blackberries, dark, sweet & sour, dark cherries, slightly roasted strawberries, dark currants & dark raisins. Limestone minerals, dark, rich, turned, black earth, dry crushed rocks, soft, sweet tarriness, some black licorice, leather, soft woodiness, chewy, salted, caramel, mocha, vanilla, dry brush with candied, floral, red, purple and blue florals.

    The body is; full, ruby, ripe & juicy. The tension & structure are firm the length & balance are nearing its peak. Candied, ruby, stewed fruits of; blackberries, dark, sweet & sour, dark cherries, slightly roasted strawberries, dar currants, dates & dark raisins. Sucking on limestone minerals, sandstone, anise, dark, rich, turned, black earth, dry crushed rocks, soft, sweet dark, tarriness, some black licorice, leather, soft woodiness, chewy, salted, caramel, mocha, vanilla, dry brush with candied, floral, red, purple and blue florals. The acidity is round and near perfect. The long, ruby, slightly, tarry, ruby, rich, well balanced finish persists endlessly.

    The 01 still has another 15-20 years plus of good drinking ahead.
