($190; bottled in May of 2004) Bright ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of blackberry, bitter chocolate and minerals, with a medicinal aspect and a hint of tarry oak. Juicy, firm-edged flavors of black fruits, minerals, licorice, mint and tarry oak; reminded me of a young Rauzan-Segla. Finishes with excellent length, even if the tannins are a bit tougher and less sweet than those of the 2003.

This dense ruby/purple-colored 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits classic aromas of loamy soil, black currants, and cherries along with hints of new saddle leather, spice, dried herbs, and new wood. With medium body and elegant flavors, this still firm, tannic 2002 should be at its finest between 2007-2014.

Bold and rich, but restrained. Tightly wound now, but manages to push a load of dense blackberry and currant flavors across the palate. Framed by a judicious use of vanilla-laced oak. Tannins are firm yet integrated. Give this youngster time, either by decanting or cellaring. Best from 2007 through 2014. 350 cases made.
