Lot #856. Barton Vale Cabernet Sauvignon The Lazarus Barton Hill Vineyard 2001

Description: Consists of 3 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 90 ST.
"Bright medium ruby. Cool aromas of candied blackberry, plum, flowers, cedar, mocha, bitter chocolate, violet and eucalyptus. Juicy, spicy and sweet, with primary flavors of black fruits, bitter chocolate, violet and smoke. This boasts subtlety and lift in the middle palate. Finishes with firm, dusty tannins and a lingering floral note. I might have scored this even higher but for a bit of finishing dryness that emerged as the wine opened in the glass. A very promising first release for this wine; Rolf Binder consults here." Vinous, Jul 2004
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $110
