    The 2002, a 500-case blend of 56% Syrah, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 8% Merlot possesses a dense purple color in addition to a sweet nose of scorched earth, soy, blackberries, pepper, and subtle oak. Full-bodied, with supple tannins, loads of licorice, blackberry and creme de cassis, and a lavishly rich finish with sweet tannin, it is an impressive wine to drink over the next 10-12 years.

    ($90; a blend of 56% syrah, 36% cabernet sauvignon and 8% merlot) Aromas of roasted plum, currant, minerals and licorice, with a hint of more exotic fruits. Then tightly wound and cool in the mouth, with black fruit and mineral flavors lifted by exotic spices. A distinctly rocky wine with a medicinal, clenched character. Rather austere for this bottling, although the cabernet in this north-facing vineyard has a tendency toward hardness. Finishes firmly tannic and long.
