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+� "
