Dark black color and entirely opaque. Fruit forward nose. Notes of black cherry, spice, tobacco leaf, leather saddle and some wood. Massive fruit and structure in the mouth. Acidity is present but in balance with fruit and structure. Tannins somewhat softened. Rich in the mouth. Long finish. An excellent wine. While I guessed the other 2 Cabs as new world I thought this was a younger Lafite or Mouton. Well made juice!

Modest showing for a profound wine. A slightly tannic and drying tail was the sole detractor from a perfectly balanced, wonderfully integrated and cassis-laden gem.

A little tried on the first sip but 45 minutes in it is dark plum with leather and a cigar box finish that last 15 - 20 seconds. That said time to drink ‘em.

First bottle in our Dominus vertical from ‘01 to ‘13 at Formento. It didn’t get any better as this was the consensus WOTN. 2001 Napa Cabs remain awesome.

Fine integrated tannins combined with a plush core of blackberry fruit, lead pencil, coffee grounds and sweet licorice. This was truly phenomenal. Not fading in the least. Powerful and dense with a velvet smooth sexy finish.

Medium purple in the glass with a touch of brick reflections at the rim. Fairly closed nose at first, opened up over 1-2 hours. Dark berries, anise, vanilla. Caramel and sweeter tannins. Nice length and balance. Half the groups favorite. My third favorite.

Impressive but still sooo young. I hope to revisit many times over the next 10-30+ years.

2001 - in a great drinking window right now. Still plenty of fruit.
