Potentially better than the 2000, but also more structured and tannic, is the formidably endowed, immensely promising 2001 First Growth Terra Rossa. A Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated offering with a touch of Merlot in the blend, it needs 2-3 years of cellaring, and should keep for 15+. Its opaque purple color is followed by gorgeous aromas of scorched earth, creme de cassis, blackberries, cedar, caramel, and licorice. Full-bodied, with an opulent attack followed by a structured, tannic finish, this pure, dense, promising 2001 will be at its finest between 2006-2018. Robert Parker, Aug 2003



Deep garnet-brick in color, the 2001 First Growth Cabernet Sauvignon shows off a lovely core of vibrant black fruits and Christmas cake highlighted by nuances of chocolate, eucalypt, dried roses and tea. Full-bodied, rich and seductive in the mouth, it is drinking well now and has a long finish. Drink now to 2017+. ||No known USA importer. eRobertParker.com.February, 2014
