(WA96-98 points) A prodigious effort the 2001 Tirant is a 9000-bottle cuvee made from 30% Grenache (90-100 years old) 25% Carignan (90-100 years old) 25% young vine Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Syrah and 10% Merlot.

(WA96-98 points) A prodigious effort the 2001 Tirant is a 9000-bottle cuvee made from 30% Grenache (90-100 years old) 25% Carignan (90-100 years old) 25% young vine Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Syrah and 10% Merlot. Fermented in large oak foudres and aged 12 months in new French oak it will be bottled with neither fining nor filtration. Inky/purple-colored to the rim it boasts a spectacular bouquet of blueberries blackberries and the region's classic crushed stone minerality. This full-throttle yet remarkably elegant 2001 possesses tremendous intensity and texture as well as layers of flavor but comes across as not over the top overripe or overly heavy. The 60-second finish reveals more noticeable tannin than the other cuvees. Give it 1-2 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 10-15. The 2001 Tirant is indeed a special wine. - Robert Parker

Exotic coconutty oak on the rather port-like nose. At once sweeter and more primary than the Amadis, with a penetrating minerality. Also quite oaky, but has more jammy plum and blackberry fruit to stand up to the wood. Still, it's hard to predict whether this slightly pruney wine will reward more time in bottle. Finishes with sweet tannins and good length. (My bottle of the 2000 release last year showed fresher acidity, but this is richer. )
