This light bodied, nicely aromatic 2001 vintage has aged notes of red currant/cherry, leather, cedar, vanilla and pronounced smoke. It is tannic (decant for half to full hour) and has a long finish. This wine should not be kept past 5 years (2-3 more like it) and will not benefit from it. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 89.5 pts. I think this wine is a bit pricey in comparison to other currently available wines (see below). Tasted Aug/10.

Very good right blank red. (Merlot)
Brown colour shows it is aging gracefully and still has a few more good years left.
Unlike another review, I found the tannins soft, and silky shortly after opening.
Cherry and minerla notes tasted.
Interesting but did not get too excited.
