Tasting Notes:
rated: October 1, 2003 , Robert Parker erobertparker.com
"89-92+? points: this 2002 possesses plenty of power, a dense ruby/purple color, and a sweet nose of hot rocks intermixed with black currants, plums, cherries, and spice box. Medium-bodied and tannic, it cuts a large swath across the palate this wine will be outstanding as well as long-lived. At this stage, it is similar in structure to the 1996 and 1988. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2020." Best 2008-2020

91 points "Bright aromas of blackberries, cherries, currants and toasted oak follow through to a full-bodied palate, with chewy tannins. Long and silky. Racy. Best after 2009." Best 2009-

3.5 stars "Powerful with smoky and chocolate aromas on the nose. On the palate, young and tannic with notes of creme brulee, followed by a vivid lengthy finish. Needs more time!"
