The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a deep ruby color, along with a big, sweet nose of dried herbs intermixed with black currant, cherry, and hints of wood smoke and earth. It is best drunk over the next 7-8 years.

Full-bodied with magnificent concentration, purity and texture, this modern day legend should still be drinking beautifully in 2035
