Duckhorn Patzimaro Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2001
Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California
"The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Patzimaro Vineyard is the most evolved and drinkable of these single vineyard offerings. Its dense purple color is accompanied by a stunning perfume of sweet licorice intermixed with black currants, chocolate, cedar and spice box. With sweet tannins, a broad, savory, multidimensional mouthfeel, abundant fruit and an impressive finish, it will provide plenty of pleasure over the next 20 years."
The Wine Advocate
"Similar to the Stout bottling, a rather dry, tannic wine, filled with dark stone fruit flavors. Grips the palate with dusty astringency now, but aging should soften and release the underlying sweetness and fruit. Nice overall balance and concentration."
"Floral, grapey scents are firm and tight on the palate, giving it excellent structure, and it unfolds gracefully, leading to subtle flavor nuances and hints of blueberry and spice, finishing with a firm yet ripe core of tannins."
"Bright ruby. Sexy aromas of roasted currant, mocha, leather and game. Rich, supple and large-boned, with cassis and sweet oak flavors offering excellent breadth. Not especially primary wine and already accessible. Finishes broad and ripely tannic."
