The 2002 is indeed one of the greatest Cabernet Sauvignons I have ever tasted from California. Boasting enormous concentration extraordinary complexity (roasted coffee notes intermixed with blueberry blackberry jus de viande subtle smoky oak and a wealth of spice) it possesses terrific fruit extraordinary intensity and an amazingly pure rich long (over 50 seconds) blockbuster finish. This brilliant uncompromising expression of Cabernet Sauvignon clearly demonstrates this vineyard's potential as well as the enormous multi-million-dollar effort Stuart Sloan has put into both the winery and the vineyard. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2020+.

Flirting with perfection as the fruit is absolutely gorgeous seemingly flawless with its tremendous silky texture layers of currant black licorice blackberry and wild berry fruit. Despite all its richness depth and complexity it ends on a plush note with ripe fine-grained tannins. Best from 2007 through 2014. 420 cases made. –JL

Impressively supple rich and seamless like a liquid confection. This is almost too big for the mouth and yet there's no impression of excess weight. Finishes with wonderfully sweet palate-dusting tannins and slow-building length. Perhaps atypically sweet for a wine from this property but I'm not complaining. This almost made the excellent '01 seem lean in comparison.
