($75) Good saturated ruby. Roasted black fruits on the nose. Superripe, fat and dense; broader but not sweeter than the RBS bottling, which is from Clone 337 (this is mostly Clone 4). Blacker in character than the RBS. Very ripe but youthfully closed. Finishes with huge, toothdusting tannins and terrific length. This will need at least four to six years of additional bottle aging. Winemaker Brown considers 2002 a more muscular vintage for cabernet than 2003, which he describes as rounder and fleshier. "The 2003s will be better young, but the 2002s will be superior in the long run," he maintains.
