91 Points Robert Parker
The outstanding 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Art Series boasts spicy, subtle French oak, cedar, spice box, black currant aromas and flavors gently touched by licorice and herbs. This attractive, medium-bodied Cabernet exhibits layers of richness, a graceful, restrained personality, decent acidity, noticeable but sweet tannin, and a long finish. Enjoy this beauty over the next decade.

Strong colour; powerful, focused and concentrated blackcurrant and blackberry fruit, with lingering tannins to underwrite a long life. One of the very best ever under this label. Drink to 2016.
