Performing better than ever Seavey's 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon (98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot) was made by French winemaking consultant Philippe Melka. This cuvee comes from dry farmed vineyards tucked on the hillsides of Conn Valley behind the famous Meadowood Resort. This vineyard's history goes back to the 1870s. The 2002 was tight and tannic when first released (not unusual for young Seavey Cabernet Sauvignons) but it has sweetened up beautifully. The color remains an opaque murky plum/garnet/purple and the bouquet reveals notes of volcanic scorched earth melted chocolate licorice and a jus de viande smell (or is it bouquet garni?). Full-bodied and rich with tell-tale cassis blackberries plums and foresty notes this massive masculine wine is built for those with cold cellars and long lifelines. Forget it for another 5-10 years and drink it over the following 25. It is no doubt a 50-year wine.
