Vine Cliff Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2001 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Wild berries and mocha on the nose

Full bodied and richly textured on the palate

Moderately tannic with blackberry and toffee on the finish


Here's a nice wine that's still very youthful. If you have some in your cellar, you're fortunate. You will be rewarded by patience as this continues to develop nicely. The flavor profile is really nice and it seems well integrated.

I was fortunate to enjoy this recently at a restaurant in magnum bottles, and it was a crowd pleaser at the table. The wine retails for around $75. Raise a glass!
