Explosive highly nuanced aromas of currant dried rose tobacco brown sugar espresso and mint. Silky lush dense and penetrating with uncommon lift in the middle palate. Captivating flavors of currant spice cake tobacco and earth. A red blend in a Right Bank style with superb definition and snap. Finishes very long and juicy with firm but thoroughly ripe tannins. This should gain in bottle for a decade or more.

The opaque purple-colored 2001 Arietta (60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc) was very closed when I tasted it. Tightly wound with dense full-bodied notes of black fruits charcoal smoke earth and pain grille it is big and rich but tight structured and backward. Give it 3-5 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 12-15. I do not believe it will ever achieve the aromatic complexity exhibited by the 2000.
