The color is a dense purple, and the bouquet offers sweet but reserved aromas of blackberries, raspberries, crushed rocks, and kirsch liqueur. It possesses superb texture, enormous body, and tremendous purity as well as overall symmetry. The tannin is high, but it is largely concealed by the wealth of fruit and extract. Give it 3-4 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following 15-18. Robert Parker

Positive surprise in the '01 CdP flight, gamey, smokey nose, rich, leathery, big-but-integrated dark red and plummy fruit. Lonnnnng sweet tobacco finish, hiding alcohol well. Still has tannins to go but unlikely to get better, quite beautifully integrated.

Late night bottle was well worth it. Fantastic flavor and oak brought out a smoke filled taste
