Medium Ruby with an attractive edge. Currants, rose petals, and clove spice, a touch of new leather and dried cherries. Follows the aroma profile with fine, firm tannins. It promises to develop subtle, supple layers. Perhaps the most Bordeaux-like wine we have made.
"Readers looking for a Pauillac look-alike from Napa Valley should check out Todd Anderson's 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) that is just beginning to hit its plateau of full maturity. Aromas of truffles, sweet loamy soil, plum sauce, creme de cassis, cedar and wood smoke emerge from this broad, expansive, plump effort. Starting to reveal some secondary nuances in its seamless personality, it possesses lots of power, beautiful purity, a broad, full-bodied mouthfeel and 15+ years of life still ahead of it."
