Had one glass of the '01 this past friday night and just loved it. Vivid and focused, with laser beams of floral and tropical notes balanced with minerality and the tiniest echo of herbaceousness (white pepper, perhaps?). According to the label, the yields for this wine were something like 1.25 tons / acre, which would explain the concentration.
Of course, I had just finished travelling from NYC to the Virginia countryside and had a raging headache when I sipped the Calera, so that's a pretty subjective TN. Luckily, there was a just-opened bottle of '83 Leoville-Proyferre waiting for me there as well.
