A sensational wine a near perfect sphere of ripe fleshy currant blackberry plum cedar tobacco and heady floral rose petal aromatics. Intense concentrated and plush turing silky-smooth on a long glorious finish with espresso nutmeg and ripe tannins. Best from 2006 through 2014. 190 cases made.

The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Tychson Hill Vineyard’s tiny production of 190 cases will not be enough for Cabernet lovers. It boasts an inky/purple color thrilling concentration and gorgeously pure aromas of blackberry creme de cassis pain grille white chocolate and vanilla ice cream. Incredibly long pure and dense but tightly-wound this is a wine of enormous constitution and wonderfully sweet integrated tannin yet I got the sense that it was only revealing part of its personality. It needs 7-8 years of bottle age and should last for 30 years. It is a brilliant effort!

Exotic aromas of roasted blackberry minerals and bitter chocolate; distinctly liqueur-like. Then wonderfully sweet and full with compelling richness and ripeness and strong notes of torrefaction and exotic spices to go with its flavors of cassis minerals underbrush and earth. This boasts the almost confectionery fruit quality of the best 2001s. Finishes with firm but fine tannins and outstanding palate-staining length. The crop level here was around 1.5 tons per acre according to winemaker Aubert.
