Aged: 12 Years
The 2002 vintage has matured slowly, resulting in little change in flavor profile since release in 2006. It is still very fresh in the glass with almost no color change, amazingly youthful for a wine that is now nine years old.
94 points, The Wine News: (June/July 2005): “Distinctive nose of briary bramble berry, accented with bright blueberry and loamy earthiness. Deeply flavored and viscous with ripe, medium-full tannins… this is a muscular Cabernet brimming with concentrated dark berry-cassis fruit; finishes with subtle notes of white chocolate and white pepper.”
91 points, “Cellar Selection,” Wine Enthusiast: (2/1/2006) “...rich and balanced. Should have no trouble developing for a decade.”
