International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 120

(76% cabernet sauvignon, 12% merlot, 9% cabernet franc and 3% petit verdot) Superripe aromas of black fruits and roast coffee; just this side of porty. Sweet, lush and deep, with flavors of blackberry, bitter chocolate, spices and minerals. Quite firmly built, even a bit youthfully austere. Finishes with ripe, building tannins and a note of menthol. This boasts excellent energy and grip.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Saturated blackberry color, with a dense, rich, enormously concentrated center of dark fruits built around currant, wild berry, black cherry and blackberry. Tightly wound yet revealing a supple, fleshy texture while the finish zooms on, coating the palate. Yet for all its size and concentration, this is notable for its elegance and finesse and should reward cellaring. 630 cases made.

One of the best 2002s tasted and a worthy follow up to the 2001. Deeply concentrated dark fruits (plum) and oak in the nose and mouth. Excellent length. Tannins are high but still well integrated and the wine?s acids are virtually perfect. Aged or 20 months in 100% new French oak. 82% Cabernet, 7% Merlot, 7% Franc, and 4% Petit Verdot. After some rather ho hum initial vintages, both the 2001 and 2002 Gemstone from barrel have been extremely impressive. Pam Starr has managed to cram lots of power into the wines without resorting to sugar and without sacrificing elegance and complexity.
