Magic In a Bottle

One of those wines that you never forget, no matter how many great bottles you may have had. This is one for the ages. Explosive aromatics ranging from raspberry to blueberry to cassis, coffee, espresso, mocha, earth, and more. Attack is just as thrilling with a laser-like focus and a mid-palate progression that sends the mind reeling in search of superlatives. Chocolate, black cherry pie, an exotic blend of red, black, and blue fruits, with plum and jam everywhere. Mouth-coating is not doing the velvet-like tannins justice, especially after the 50-70-second denouement.

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.
