Though the 2001 was exceedingly tannic the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon is superb. Its cassis liqueur blackberry and spice aromas lead to a juicy fresh hugely ripe personality of exceptional purity and length. Blackberries black currants and dark cherries vie with spices and oak for the taster's attention. A complex highly expressive vibrant wine with a delightfully long suave finish it is a candidate for drinking over the next 10-14 years.

Dense focused and ripe a spicy mouthful of black cherry red currant and meaty flavors that last impressively on the well-formed finish. Oak is present but well-integrated. Needs lots of time to grow. Best from 2009... Dense focused and ripe a spicy mouthful of black cherry red currant and meaty flavors that last impressively on the well-formed finish. Oak is present but well-integrated. Needs lots of time to grow. Best from 2009 through 2017. 2524 cases made.

Round lush and sweet on entry then pliant and chewy in the middle with captivating sweetness. Densely packed and structured yet light on its feet. A real essence of cabernet and very long on the finish. This may well merit an even higher score with three or four more years of bottle aging.
