"Color: dark; Nose: discreet; Aromas: tree fruit; Acidity: supple; Sweetness: dry; Body: full-bodied; Finish: medium; Overall: elegant; Warm, lovely, subtle and elegant. Very developed and resolved with floral bouquet. Approachable. Ripe black cherries and plums. Black olives, earth, mint, cedar and spice notes. Drink now and over the next 10 years. (tasting note summer 2004) Medium-weight, with herb, dill, cedar and earthy cherry and plum flavors that are elegant and well-proportioned. Turns complex on the finish. The Wine Spectator 10/31/01 "

91 points "Reminiscent of 1994, the 2002 growing season was long and cool with a couple of heat spikes in early October that served to bring grapes home. Small crops produced complex, concentrated flavors draped over flawless structure. Norm Roby writes in Decanter: �2002 may change the way many international wine lovers think about California Cabernet Sauvignon. The finest and most typical wines avoid that juicy-jammy opulent style that is so obvious but often lets you down in the finish.� Brimming with plum and blackberry fruit with hints of cocoa, the 2002 is expansive and deep, while at the same time, supple and balanced with a long, satisfying finish. Steve Tanzer writes: �Dark ruby-red. High-pitched aromas of cassis, violet and bitter chocolate. Juicy flavors of dark berries and baking spices, with a firm edge of acidity giving the wine shape and grip and a floral element contributing to the wine's inner-mouth aromatic character. 91+� "
