The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a 4300-case blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc according to winemaker Rosemary Cakebread. A blue/purple color accompanies a gorgeous perfume of crushed rocks intermixed with blueberries and black currants as well as subtle touches of toasty oak and white chocolate. A classic example of power allied with elegance it possesses undeniable finesse yet tremendous flavor intensity without being heavy. This beauty is one of the most provocative and intense efforts of the vintage yet it is strikingly delicate for its concentrated personality. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 14-15.
