Great wine! Bold fruit, dark and delicious. Like drinking a large glass of chocolate covered cherries. Decanted for 1 hour. Would have loved to taste the differences over time but our group drank the magnum like it was the last wine in the world. I should have brought more!

A big rather funky but very aromatic nose of buttery plum, cherry and oak. While the nose is extremely fine, in the mouth the wine disappoints. It lacks fruit concentration (not something that can be said very often regarding top flight Napa Valley 2002 Cabernets) yet it is quite smooth with moderate tannins and integrated acids. The 2002 Cabernet is much more subdued at the present time than expected. 100% Cabernet aged entirely in French oak.
