Robert Parker - 90 See more...
The deep, smoky, unevolved but richly fruity 2001 Flor de Pingus reveals black cherry, berry, and earthy notes along with notions of barbecue spices and cigar smoke. Medium to full-bodied and opulent, it is best consumed during its first decade of life.
Wine Spectator - 92 See more...
This generous red shows a plush texture, with plum and blackberry fruit flavors matched by chocolate oak notes and supported by ripe tannins. It matches concentration with focus, and stays balanced and fresh through the long, spicy finish. Drink now through 2012. 3,500 cases made.

Barely a step down from the more rare and pricey Pingus, the '01 Flor should fly off store shelves and restaurant wine lists. It's that good, starting with the intoxicating nose and moving through the pure palate and onto the marvelous finish. A wine that goes all the way, with spice, leather and mounds of rich, ripe fruit.
