    Bright medium ruby. Superripe but fresh aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, cappuccino, sassafras and bitter chocolate. Sweet, concentrated, creamy berry flavors are nicely framed by sound acidity and complicated by spice notes of cardamom and nutmeg. Very sexy oak here. The juicy, very long finish features dusty, fine tannins.

    The only 2002 I tasted here was the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Treva's Vineyard VSR. This stunning effort possesses a Bordeaux-like structure, but the extraordinary ripeness and richness that only comes from Napa fruit. Its dense purple color is followed by sweet aromas of creme de cassis, smoke, coffee, and chocolate. With loads of flavor, a voluptuous palate, supple tannin, and a sensational finish with notes of scorched earth, flowers, licorice, and spice box, this stunning Cabernet should be at its peak between 2007-2018. This is an impressive newcomer that merits serious attention.

California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
