Wine Spectator 96 Collectible "A very silky wine with berry, cedar and tobacco character. Full-bodied, with fine tannis and a fresh finish. Lovely. Seductive and racy. Very long indeed. Strength yet finesse. Best after 2007. (J.S.)" Stephan Tanzer 95 "Good full red-ruby. Rather mute on the nose, hinting only at plum. Then plummy, dense and deep, with strong acids giving the wine terrific grip. Notes of licorice, violet and minerals lift the wine's fruit. Comes across as the least filled-in of these three 2001s today, but this still needs time to harmonize. Most impressive today on the powerfully structured, slow-building finish."

With its delicate aromatic nose of flowers spices minerals and menthol the 2001 Sori Tildin is less overtly lush than Costa Russi offering much delineation in its elegant macerated cherry fruit and tar flavors with greater length fine tannins and exceptional overall balance. It is always the most nuanced and classic of the Gaja single-vineyard wines. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2023. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.


Winemaker's Notes:

Deep red-ruby. A bit less exuberant on the nose than the Cos ta Russi hinting at plum mocha chocolate underbrush and minerals. Very suave on entry then brooding classy and young with far more primary black fruit and licorice flavors than the nose suggests. Less showy today than the Costa Russi but perhaps even longer with more powerful tannins. This really calls for at least seven or eight years of additional bottle aging. 94 pts. S. Tanzer
