Utterly perfect another wine that seems to have taken on a first-growth Pauillac-like character (think Mouton-Rothschild) is the 2001 St. Eden. With a remarkably perfumed nose of crushed rocks subtle barbecue smoke and again cedar wood intermixed with creme de cassis and blackberry this wine displays a phenomenally concentrated mouthfeel full-bodied opulence voluptuous texture and of this trio is certainly the closest to its apogee of full maturity. Nevertheless it will still benefit from another 5-10 years of cellaring and keep for an additional 25-30.

From Oakville a wine quite different from Bond's Melbury. Not as immediately lush and flamboyant it's a trace more reserved. Darker too more tannic and closed. Starts with an earthiness.

Starts with an earthiness. Airing brings out cherries and cassis. There is great balance and integrity here...

Dark fruits cola smoke and licorice on the nose lifted by a floral element. Then densely packed and sappy with a strong mineral component and firm acidity giving the wine outstanding clarity and class and contributing to the explosiveness of its very long finish. Here the tannins are currently hidden by sheer flavor. I find this more suave than the 2006 bottling at the same stage of its evolution. 94(+?) points
