Dense & dynamic

This is a super intense and pungent cab. The WS review used the word mediciny, which is perfectly fitting. A nice heavy start, complex mints and chocolates, but then the finish leaps out at you, full of cloves, tobacco, musty and spicy. it is bold. This is excellent, but a bit of a challenge to drink given its complexity.

Napa Valley 2002

2002 began with a very dry winter followed by a moderate spring with some rains in May. Conditions were even and mild throughout the summer with the exception of a few heat spikes in September that gave the grapes an extra push as harvest approached. The resulting wines have juicy, fresh acidities and brightness to match their deep dark-fruit cores. Overall an excellent vintage of supple, balanced, concentrated, high-quality wines that have the polish and ripeness to age well.
