International Wine Cellar(2001 Vintage) Rating: 93/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 109, July/August 2003 ($120) Very pale color, especially in the context of the year. Reticent but vibrant nose hints at fresh apple, spearmint, talc, ginger and gun metal. Rich, full, sweet and pure, with highly concentrated, brisk flavors of lime, mint and spices. The wine's glyceral richness is leavened by brisk acidity. A 2001 of uncommon energy, and extremely long on the aftertaste.
