Very complex with blackberries flowers and minerals. Full-bodied with fine tannins and a fresh sweet fruit aftertaste. Refined La Mission. Beautiful. Best after 2008. (JS)

Like its more famous neighbor Haut-Brion the 2001 La Mission Haut-Brion has closed down considerably since bottling. A blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon 35% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc it possesses an inky/purple color (deeper than Haut-Brion&#146;s) in addition to a tight but promising bouquet of scorched earth wood tar black currants and a hint of hickory wood. Medium-bodied firm muscular and virile it is a candidate for long term cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020+.</P>
