Retail purchase, held about two years. Open for 1 hour, no decant. Deep dark blue. Eight years on the vintage presents a very well integrated, balanced and full-bodied cabernet with perfect ripeness, acidity and tannins. The 2002 CSS stops short of over-the-top bombastic showings for which premium Napa are often chastised. Fragrant, delicious, very enjoyable. I enjoyed a bottle of this vintage on release, definitely worth revisiting now. This wine trades above current retail for a reason. Classic and wonderful. A 20+ year bottle.

Dark inky purple color - probably the last shade you can call a wine red instead of black. Almost sweet tannins, slight acidity this Special Select is probably as full bodied and dense as it can get. Aromas of black fruit and vanilla. Bold, long lasting finish - great to drink today.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
