A blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Syrah the 2001 Variation One exhibits sweet flowery blackberry and cassis flavors with chocolate and leather in the background.

A blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Syrah the 2001 Variation One exhibits sweet flowery blackberry and cassis flavors with chocolate and leather in the background. This big full-bodied opulent layered multidimensional 2001 needs 2-3 years of cellaring. It should drink well for 1-2 decades.

...vivid complex aromas with dense rich and well-defined fruit flavors... fine tannins and a beautiful core of currant tar raspberry cherry and nutmeg scents...
