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.

Fading fast, fruit is gone, definite colour change to orange and plenty of sediment
