(2001 Vintage) "Robert Parker 98: The 2001 Serpico, impenetrable and inky, staggeringly rich in both aroma and flavor, offers ultra-ripe but perfectly fresh berry fruit, cloves, cinnamon and chocolate, and mouth-coating, deep-pile tactile sensations which combine iron power and an enveloping voluptuous texture infinitely deep and long.
