The impact of this wine makes it feel larger than life, the most
powerful of the 2001s in our tasting. Closed and unyielding at
first, it opens to a vast expanse of flavor, from dates to figs and
walnut skin. Scents of smoke and jasmine seem to rise out of
the earthiness of the tannin, a robust structure that isn't
weighed down by the wine's extract. Instead, the structure and
extract act as a wellspring, the source of a continual flow of
complex flavors. A long-term wine, this needs another eight to
ten years to begin to show its best.
