Floral nose of ripe fruits with hints of licorice and some smoky, tarry minerality. Rich, coating mouthfeel. Great meaty notes of red berry and a nice savory quality, like the richness of bone marrow. I'd say this wine needs food. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 8/7/10

Night OnePurple flowers, lavendar and lilac, just float out of the glass, along with some dark plum and plum skins. On the palate the same flowers take center stage. There is fruit there, too, but it is hidden behind strong tannins that scream out for more years in the cellar. Plums, nee plum skins, are the primary fruit, but more will surely come out of hiding on Night Two. I hope you will join me to see if my prediction comes true.Night TwoFloral aromas once again lead the nose on Night Two, but the additional time with some air brought out black fruit, more blackberry than blackcurrant, but both were there. The palate has more to offer than on Night One, but the overall impression is that this could use more time. Pencil lead, cassis, and tart plum skins are slowly wrapped in firm tannins as it moves from initial attack to mid-palate, where a hint of unsweetened chocolate makes a quick appearance. Acids and tannins are both pwoerful, but well-balanced. The finish is long.This is good but still young. The sense of it is that it is just waking up now, just starting to come out of a closed phase. It might well be much better in as little as a year or two. There is plenty of backbone, acid and tannins, to give it time to grow and knit together.

...Black cherry, tobacco and minerals on the nose. Dense but juicy and sharply delineated, thanks to its firm spine of acidity. A bit compact today, but finishes with lovely musky sweetness, firm but ripe tannins and superb length. Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2001 Mission Haut Brion, La 750ml

Haut-Brion s 2001 which was bottled late (the end of September 2003) possesses an unmistakable nobility as well as a burgeoning complexity. Plum/purple to the rim this blend of 52% Merlot 36% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc is playing it close to the vest having closed down considerably after bottling. Nevertheless it reveals pure notes of sweet and sour cherries black currants licorice smoke and crushed stones. Medium-bodied with excellent purity firm tannin and an angul

Full red-ruby less bright than La Mission. Brooding aromas of raspberry nuts menthol and game. Dense rich chewy and deep but a bit youthfully closed showing less personality today than the 2001 La Mission. Larger but not longer. Finishes with building tannins and a minty nuance. 92+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.
