Great meal with good friends. This was the WOTN! Beautiful dark color. Great aromas of dark fruits and earth. I could have sniffed it all night. Lots of nice tannins and fruit up front with great earthiness underneath. This was still a young wine. I love 2001 Bordeaux.
.....we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. A. Lincoln
