Tasting Notes

The 2001 Merlot is a beautiful, stunning wine. Still somewhat coiled, the 2001 reveals impeccable balance in its silky fruit, new leather, chocolate and spices. This is a refined, layered wine, yet the aromas and flavors are very slightly forward, suggesting it won't be one of the most long-lived vintages. In the meantime, it should provide memorable drinking. In 2001 production levels were normal, which is to say Pontoni bottled just eight barrels of this juice. As always, the wine was aged in 100% new oak, mostly Taransaud with a touch of Vicard.
