Winemaker's Notes

The 2002 vintage is superb. The cool, consistent growing season provided extended hang-time and even ripening, resulting in more concentration and highly developed flavors. The 2002 Signature Cabernet Sauvignon exemplifies how an ideal vintage and meticulous attention to detail in the vineyard can result in powerful wines with extraordinary depth and character.

Enticing aromas of wild berries and flavors of crème de cassis, espresso and bittersweet chocolate tantalize the palate and are complemented by cedar-spice and sweet vanillin notes. Velvety tannins add graceful support to the wine's supple richness and concentration. While similar in character to previous vintages, this wine surpasses its celebrated predecessors in overall flavor saturation and complexity. Best served decanted in its youth, it will age wonderfully until 2015.
