Rich and complex with aromas of cigar box, mint and a hint of vanilla from French oak aging; a full-bodied wine with flavors of black currant and rich, elegant tannins with an excellent finish.
The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon fruit was harvested in late September and early October, after an exceptional growing season that was on par with the famed 1997 vintage. Following fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine was aged in French oak barrels for two years. The resulting wine is wonderfully complex with powerful cassis, spice and mint flavors. Delicious now, this Cabernet will continue to develop and improve for at least a decade.
