Wine Advocate | Rating: 89A richer, more complete wine, the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a denser opaque ruby/purple color along with smoky, chocolatey, black currant fruit intermixed with earth, wood and a hint of tobacco leaf. This medium to full-bodied 2002 should drink well for another decade.Author: Robert Parker
Self | Rating: 92Magnificent cab, long finish, great bouquet of cassis, blackberry, and tobacco. Drunk in its prime. I would not wait much longer to savor the best of this vintage.Author: JimZin
