2001 Cabernet Sauvignon, Jericho Canyon
Robert M. Parker Jr.'s The Wine Advocate
December 23, 2003
Even more compelling is the 2001 Jericho Canyon Vineyard Proprietary Red, a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, and 19% Cabernet Franc from a vineyard near Calistoga. A superb effort, it boasts a saturated purple color along with an extraordinary smoky nose revealing scents of roasted coffee, melted licorice, graphite, and copious amounts of blackberry and cassis liqueur.
