"Aged 18 months in 100% new French oak from 75-year old Tempranillo vines, the 2001 Pagos Viejos is one of Spain’s greatest wines. A singular red of extraordinary stature and intensity, it exhibits an inky/ruby/purple color as well as a luxurious bouquet of lead pencil shavings, black and blue fruits, espresso roast, and floral notes. This full-bodied, dense 2001 possesses layers of flavor, a sweet integration of tannin and wood, and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute."

"Artadi's selection from old vines is remarkably fresh for an eight-year-old wine. The fruit has a malic intensity, with a little crunchiness to the juicy currant and red cherry flavors. Meanwhile, the density is so great the extract takes its time dripping down the sides of the glass. You can practically breathe the earthy power of the structure, yet it isn't blunt or overwhelming. Over the course of several days, the wine becomes increasingly classical in its finesse, and more impressive for the arc of its finish. Built to last for decades, this needs another ten years before it's fully accessible."
