Winemaker Note: The 2002 vintage can be defined by its uniformity of fruit due to an excellent growing season tempered by a lack of extreme heat or rain. The advent of our Indian Summer during the second week of harvest prompted a quick finish, so that harvest lasted just three and a half weeks. Overall, it was a wonderful season, producing a layered, textured Cabernet Sauvignon.
This wine has well-integrated flavors, deep color and a full mouthfeel. It displays intriguing aromas of cassis, black cherry and dark chocolate, with undertones of sweet tobacco and cedar. Rich texture and a restrained oak framework support the opulent flavors of ripe blackberry, cherry and cassis.
