(2001 Vintage) Incredible color—could use in an inkwell. Loads of spicy red berry and black cherry fruit flavors and aromas. Beautifully density and structure with lots of fine tannins and incredible length. Will age well, but could be hard to keep your hands off of. Pairs well with foods such as venison or wild game, steak, pork, quail, all types of lamb, and medium-strong cheeses. A very flexible wine due to its concentration and balance.
