The 2002 HL Cabernet Sauvignon speaks of the classic Herb
Lamb Vineyards fruit – big, spicy, black fruits but with the
vineyard's finesse and balance. Winemaker Mike Trujillo calls
this wine "a very forward wine from a serious and classic
vintage, big and bold, but with great balance, still showing
soft, tame tannins that make it very drinkable in its youth.
This wine reminds me of the 1994 vintage, but with more
complexity – rich, velvety, silky, with lots of finesse."
This Cabernet Sauvignon is both chewy and juicy, showing spicy cocoa and really ripe black fruits with a touch of rich black espresso and opulent dark chocolate in the mouth. This wine ages as it
opens up in the glass, softening to show great finesse and balance, and should do nothing but develop further in the bottle.
