The majestic 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses the same characteristics as the 2001 just more of them. Boasting more perfume a bigger attack and mid-palate as well as greater length and intensity this beautiful Cabernet reveals notes of camphor intermixed with black currants cherries licorice cedar and minerals. Full-bodied and opulent with a structured finish it is accessible now because of its wealth of fruit and concentration but it should easily evolve for 15 or more years. The good news is there are 800 cases of this wine.
