($62) Pungent aromas of raw berries and eucalyptus, with a hint of dill pickle. Juicy, minty and bright, with a supple texture and good weight. Less green in the mouth, but still hints at dill. A rather idiosyncratic cabernet, finishing with sweet tannins and good persistence.

Surprisingly vibrant for a 2002 with more prominent acidity than most Napa wines. It had some mature flavors but the wine still seemed young. It was balanced and complex with very good fruit. It needed about an hour to really open up. I think this will go for many more years. It must have been outright tart on release which explains the WS score.

Plums and chocolate, currants add more fruit to the fray. Great tannin structure, fine and full length, the finish carries on because of the tannins, an exceptional steak wine. (0Â views)
