Critic Notes

The chunky-styled 2001 does not possess the charm, complexity or sweet, pure blueberry and black fruits found in Bryant’s wines since the early 1990s. It reveals a hint of new saddle leather, but the aromatics are largely restrained and need to be coaxed from the glass. The wine is full-bodied and concentrated, and by itself, is probably a better wine than my rating would suggest. However, in the company of other top 2001s, it suffers. It has 15 or more years of life remaining, but I would opt for drinking it early on since it is difficult to say what might emerge in the aromatics. May 2011, www.robertparker.com
