A distinctive bouquet of violets, soy, pepper, blackberries, cassis, and tree bark gives this 2001 a singular style. This dense ruby/purple-colored blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, and a whopping 14% Petit Verdot exhibits plenty of structure, wonderful sweetness, a closed style, but a rich, textured, persistent character. The unusually large percentage of Petit Verdot gives the wine more structure and less initial charm. This beauty needs some time in the cellar. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2018.

Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 10-Year On horizontal. This has quite a precocious bouquet with raspberry jam, boysenberry, marmalade and pencil shavings. Very fine delineation and lift, certainly more backward than its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with structure tannins, just a hint of brine on the entry, good depth of black fruit with a sinewy, grippy blackberry and cedar-infused finish. One has the feeling that this has more to offer over the next decade. Tasted March 2011.
