Beaulieu Vineyards 'clone 6' 2001

From the winery: a deep black-ruby color leads to a bouquet of the quintessential clone 6 cabernet—dark cherry fruit, black olive, and distinct minerality, with hints of roasted blackberry. These aromas are enhanced by intense vanilla herb and baking spice scents from the all new oak barrels, which adds another degree of complexity. The many layers of flavor are framed by firm, rich tannins and moderate acidity. A chewy finish and great fruit concentration suggest that this wine needs another two years in bottle before drinking. This is a handcrafted wine in every sense of the word, and will improve with 8-10 years aging from vintage to reach maturity. This is a great clone 6, and best served with simple grilled lamb or a strong, firm cheese like montgomery cheddar or parmigiano-reggiano.
