The 2002 Diamond Mountain District Young Vines Proprietary Red is a powerhouse but also extraordinarily elegant and well-delineated. Aromas of smoke creosote chocolate espresso roast cedar tobacco and black fruits galore cascade from the glass of this full-bodied concentrated powerful 2002. Still unevolved and primary this knock-out offering should be more exuberant and forward than the 2001 but qualitatively its equivalent. It will have a good upside of 15 or more years.

Roasted plum black raspberry dark chocolate tar licorice and meat on the nose; simultaneously shows a port-like character and a medicinal austerity. Lusher and sweeter than the Claret with palate-coating flavors of blackberry blueberry and truffle. "A wine of irrational exuberance" notes Ramey. Finishes very long with mouthcoating tannins and a ripeness verging on roasted. 93 points
