    Attractive creamy, cedary oak, currant, plum and black cherry aromas carry over to the plate, showing a good balance between richness, oak and tannins, and the fruit comes through on the finish.

    The Cabernet Sauvignon is aged 18 to 24 months in French oak and is100% varietal. The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Rancho del Oso's deep purple color is followed by a big, sweet nose of white chocolate, espresso roast, and fudge-infused cherries. Deep, chewy, rich, and impressive, it is exuberant and flamboyant enough to be drunk now or cellared for another 12-15 years.

    Strong aromatics of cigar box and red currant lead to a medium- to full-bodied wine with great dusty mountain tannins, red-toned fruit and loads of depth and complexity. Refined yet powerful at its core, this is a wine that is shining at the moment, but with plenty of grip and depth that speaks of plenty more to come.

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.
