I was blown away by the brilliance of the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon. Loaded with fruit this blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and tiny dollops of Cabernet Franc and Merlot tips the scales at 14.8% natural alcohol all of which is hidden beneath a cascade of gorgeous black currant fruit intermixed with toasty oak and hints of charcoal and pen ink. Exhibiting a full-bodied opulent voluptuously textured mouthfeel it is a pure dense classic Napa Cabernet that should drink well for another 10-15 years. I wish I had realized what a great wine this was early on as it was never that expensive.
