Dark purple color, right up to the rim. Blackberry, plum, white pepper, and vanilla on the nose. Similar notes on the palate with plum, licorice, smoke, and cracked pepper flavors. Soft tannins and medium acidity. Medium body but medium+ intensity. High, but well integrated alcohol (15%).

This is a really solid bottle for $15. Lots of cherry, blackberry notes, and spice. Good balance and a creamy mouth feel. I am excited to find a bottle this good at this price point.

Lovely dusty nose of dark berry fruit with hints of nutmeg, wet stone, tar and black pepper. Big minerality among the cassis, currant and black/blueberry fruit. On the palate it's richly textured, full bodied and lush. Marked minerality on the palate with roasty notes and dark berry fruit. Tight acid and tannin yet so this should get better with another couple of years in the bottle. Great structure and this would do well with food. Sweeter berry notes on the lengthy but dry finish. 91 pts.

No staying power in fridge. Over oaked.

Intense and saturated, with dark aromas of pencil lead, tree bark, cola and black fruits. In the mouth, it's full-force Cabernet. The blackberry and black cherry flavors are pure and satisfying, while the finish offers smoke, chocolate and coffee. This wine features ripeness and an overall quality rarely achieved by others in the price range.

Displays herb-tinged dark fruit aromas as well as flavors. Medium-bodied, it coats the palate with its blackberry dominated personality then tightens to a slightly rustic finish. Drink it over the next 3 years.

Lapostolle's basic Cab scores big in the fine '01 vintage. It features a deep nose of tire rubber, blackberry and rusticity. The palate is high-octane and deep, with plenty of ripe, tannic black fruit. And the finish is round and lengthy. It should age well for a couple of years.

Lively and fresh, with crushed raspberry and blueberry flavors, and a muscular, smoky finish.

COLOR: Intense inked dark red with purple hints NOSE: Exuberant and complex, with red and black fruit such as plums, black cherries combined with currant, berries, dry figs with black cocoa and a violet touch. Sweet spices like clover and vanilla give an elegant touch towards the finish. MOUTH: Well balanced, an elegant wine which has a bright attack followed by round, velvety and polished tannins filling the mid palate and a rich long lasting finish.

Intense purple color. Expressive nose full of fresh red fruit along with tobacco, cedar and tea leaf towards the finish. Fresh attack on the palate and a medium body. Finishing with very juicy tannins. The ideal companion for pastas, pork and grilled

Light-bodied and fresh, with good red plum and grape flavors backed by a hint of tobacco on the finish. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

Dunkles Purpurrot. Aromen von schwarzen und roten Johannisbeeren bestechen mit diskreten Noten von Tabak und Kräutern der Provence. Sehr gute Balance zwischen Eichenholz und Frucht. Der Gaumen wird von intensiven, aber weichen Tanninen geradezu attackiert. Dazu eine feine Säure, die zu einer harmonischen Struktur sowie zu einem besonders langem Abgang verhilft.
