Not surprisingly my favorite Napa bottling is the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon 11% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and a dollop of Petit Verdot.

It should drink well for 10-12 years.

Pungent resiny oak along with currant dark chocolate and herbs on the nose. Offers a supple texture but today the fairly intense flavors of cassis chocolate and mint are squashed under their heavy load of oak which also dries the finish.
