The 2002 vintage benefited from excellent weather conditions and terrific, ripe fruit. The result is a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon with a brilliant red hue and a rich, berry nose. This vintage has strong, round tannins with an elegant body and vibrant flavors of blackberry and cassis.
"Beautiful aromas and flavors of loam and mint, with notes of dark currant, fig and cigar smoke. Plush texture, but with deceptive strength on the finish. Just now hitting its stride, but should develop further. A beautiful rendition of cool-climate Cabernet and a star of the vintage. Drink now through 2014. 1,800 cases made." –JM, Wine Spectator
