Having performed spectacularly well last year in the retrospective of ten-year old Napa Cabernets this 2001 remains incredibly young with all of its potential waiting to burst forth. Its dense purple color is followed by notes of mulberries creme de cassis blackberries licorice graphite and subtle smoke. The wine reveals fabulous fruit along with full-bodied power and a seamless integration of acidity tannin alcohol and wood. Forget it for another 4-5 years and drink it over the following 25-30 years.

Sweet and velvety but with succulent acids giving the wine terrific vinosity. Wonderfully sweet structured and long and highly aromatic on the aftertaste. The extra time in barrel has burned off some of the wine's baby fat and revealed its spine of acids and tannins. If the extra year of barrel aging can be said to mimic the effect of several years of bottle aging the Hundred Acre wine from the clay-rich Kayli Morgan Vineyard should prove to be long-lived. 94(+?) points

Lots to admire in this dense ripe rich and concentrated youngster with a smoky creamy core of mocha- plum- and blackberry-laced fruit pencil lead and cedar notes. There's also a mix of earth leather and spice aromatics... Lots to admire in this dense ripe rich and concentrated youngster with a smoky creamy core of mocha- plum- and blackberry-laced fruit pencil lead and cedar notes. There's also a mix of earth leather and spice aromatics giving extra dimension. Finishes with a long complex aftertaste and firm and chewy tannins boding well for the future...
