Winemaker's Notes:

No two ways about it, Main Street is a wonderful vineyard. Our 2002 is a textbook example of this fine St. Helena site. The color is opaque, indicating a wine of great depth and concentration. The nose is ripe and opulent, tinged with plums, blackberries and earth. The palate is lush, plush and firm. While it is enjoyable now, the 2002 Main Street should continue to evolve and improve over the next decade.

The ripe blackberry and cassis flavors coupled with moderate plus acidity and subtle tannins of our Main Street Cabernet Sauvignon create a perfect food and wine marriage. Our Culinary Center Chefs often showcase our flagship wine with Kobe Beef Short Rib with Root Vegetable Mash, Bloomsdale Spinach and Tellicherry Pepper Reduction.
