    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.

    March 15, 2019 - Uncles Fine Wine Spring BYO (Home): Butter tones in the nose. Tobacco, almost salt. Leather and tar. Licorice. On the palate it is agricultural. I find fine spices, licorice and tar. Classical. Drinks nicely now. Silky soft structure. Elegant.

    Love it.

    June 6, 2018 - Watching the Warriors in the NBA championship. Beautiful wine, in a great place for drinking. Beautiful perfume to this wine, with distinctive note of black licorice, blackberries, and other dark fruits. Tannins are well integrated. This is a very good wine, and in a great place for drinking. Just entering it’s window, it has years of life ahead.

    July 29, 2017 - Truffles with the SLDS (CFs): Pretty nose of licorice, violet, spices and blackberry - perfumed and lifted. Lovely palate - this has great fruit and classy structure, really super drinking now and over the medium term future. Loved it.
