The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Melbury (a dead ringer for Pauillac) has an opaque blue/purple color and an extraordinarily sweet nose of charcoal, lead pencil shavings, cedar wood, black currants, licorice and spice box. Full-bodied, with great intensity, purity and texture, this is a wonderfully dense, full-throttle wine that is still an adolescent and likely to stay one for at least another 5-7 years. Look for it to age gracefully well past 20-30+ years. 98+ - Robert Parker

Sappy and superconcentrated with lush but delineated flavors of black raspberry bitter cherry and tobacco. Mounts slowly and impressively on the back half with the wine's extremely fine tannins buried in fruit.

Only ever so slightly starting to unfold from its tannic slumber; this is still dense and chewy, but offering more depth to the blackberry, black licorice, roasted herb and game flavors and ending with a solid wall of tannin that lets the fruit seep through.—2001 California Cabernet blind retrospective (June 2011). Drink now through 2025. – JL
