Bright ruby color. Nose not revealing much, but definitely primary aromas of red fruits. On the palate, juicy, red fruit - lots of sour cherry. Very good acid, with fairly muted tannins and a lengthy finish. Though drinking nicely now, 3-7 years may be even better.

Unfortunately, my own bottle, for it turned out to be delicious, strong, and with great aging potential, but yet definitely well before its time. Will likely improve strongly over the next 10-20 years, as so many other 2002s. Keep if you are lucky enough to have it.
