Winemaker's Notes:

Blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot made from extremely low yields, it boasts superb intensity, flavor, elegance, and nobility in addition to a marvelously complex nose of minerals, licorice, cedar, creme de cassis, vanilla, and spice. Exceptionally rich, nuanced, and precise, it is a magnificent expression of Cabernet Sauvignon that offers the elegance of a Bordeaux with the power and potency of Napa Valley Cabernet. A tour de force, this wine can be drunk now or cellared for up to two decades. 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard Tasting Notes Produced by a fine vintage, distinctive vineyard terroir and painstaking selection in the vineyard, winery and blending sessions, this exceptionally dense and highly complex wine exudes opulent aromas of black currant, crushed violets, nutmeg and clove. On the palate, rich flavors of crème de cassis, black fruits, roasted chestnuts and dark chocolate are nuanced with mineral, tobacco and anise notes in the lingering finish.This noble wine displays its great pedigree and authenticity. It is whole and complete; its power and elegance are a perfect expression of the Eisele Vineyard.
