International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 123

($70; includes 11% merlot as well as bits of carmenere and cabernet franc) Deep ruby-red. Highly aromatic, floral aromas of black plum, cassis, mulberry, toffee, coffee and licorice. Round, lush and sweet on entry, then pliant and chewy in the middle, with captivating sweetness. Densely packed and structured yet light on its feet. A real essence of cabernet, and very long on the finish. This may well merit an even higher score with three or four more years of bottle aging.

Though the 2001 was exceedingly tannic, the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon is superb. Its cassis liqueur, blackberry, and spice aromas lead to a juicy, fresh, hugely ripe personality of exceptional purity and length. Blackberries, black currants, and dark cherries vie with spices and oak for the taster's attention. A complex, highly expressive, vibrant wine with a delightfully long, suave finish, it is a candidate for drinking over the next 10-14 years.

Wine Spectator Author: Harvey Steiman

Dense, focused and ripe, a spicy mouthful of black cherry, red currant and meaty flavors that last impressively on the well-formed finish. Oak is present but well-integrated. Needs lots of time to grow.

We had this with grilled New York Strips on 12/15/08. It was very nice with a wonderful bouquet of cassis, tobacco, blackberry, coffee, black cherry and bell pepper aromas. The palate was very smooth and dry with cassis, plum, black cherry, blackberry, tobacco, bell pepper and coffee flavors. The tannins were very rounded and well integrated...almost imperceptible. It had a medium 35 second finish. I really liked this.
