Put them all together and you have the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve a sensational 14000-case cuvee that is one of the benchmarks for what Napa Valley is capable of achieving. Its dense purple color is followed by copious notes of smoky barbecue creme de cassis white chocolate blackberries charcoal and truffles. Full-bodied fleshy and succulent with sweet tannins in the finish this 2002 has not yet hit full maturity. Give it another 2-4 years of cellaring and drink it over the following two decades. I asked the winemaking team what the final blend was for the 2002 Private Reserve and to the best of their recollection the largest component was from Steinhauer Ranch (50%) followed by St. Helena Home Ranch (23%) and tiny percentages of Bancroft Rancho del Oso Chabot Marston and some Cabernet Franc from Howell Mountain.

Huge and sweet if still a bit monolithic, with a wave of plush berry fruit washing over the palate. Finishes with substantial granular tannins and serious palate-staining length. This wine appears to be going through a closed stage today and still needs time in the cellar.

Dark red core with intense cherry red rim. There is loads of depth on the nose here with very attractive aromas of cedar cocoa powder red currant and cassis complemented by savory dried herbs red florals hints of vanilla... Dark red core with intense cherry red rim. There is loads of depth on the nose here with very attractive aromas of cedar cocoa powder red currant and cassis complemented by savory dried herbs red florals hints of vanilla and exotic spices. Only shows a tad bit of age on the nose at this stage with a hint of truffles in the mix. Soft and full in the mouth with loads of fruit and high toasted oak this medium-bodied wine is elegantly structured leading to a long lingering finish. Drink 2011-2017.
