ROBERT PARKER RATING: 95
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Grown (2,150 cases of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc) is spectacular. An inky/purple color is accompanied by aromas of espresso roast, melted fudge, blackberries, currants, and smoke. Rich, with great intensity, tremendous purity, an opulent, full-bodied mouthfeel, and good underlying tannin as well as freshness, it should drink well for 12-15 years.
The 2001 growing season began a week earlier than normal but was back on track by early September. Warm-to-hot weather during bloom resulted in a short flowering period that promoted even ripening with slightly below average crop levels. The Cabernet Franc was harvested on Sept 4 and 7, followed by the Cabernet Sauvignon on September 11 and October 13. The weather during harvest was dry and generally moderate except for two brief heat spikes, allowing for more than sufficient hang time. As a result, the wine has concentrated, fruit forward aromatics and flavors with a lush mid-palate and a well-integrated finish. After 14 to 22 days on the skins, the wine went into barrel for eighteen months. It was fined in-barrel with fresh egg whites and bottled unfiltered in June 2003.
