This wine packs a velvety punch with lots of ripe fruit, smoothed-out tannins (just drank--7 years after vintage), and a long finish. The syrah came through nicely to tone down the cabernet a bit. A rich delicious glass. I'd suggest decanting as there was quite a bit of sediment.

Winemaker's Notes:

Taste Profile Deep ruby-purple color. Strong black pepper and currant aromas with hints of violets, and sweet vanilla-spice oak scents accented by mint. The Syrah provides distinctive blackberry, licorice and dark cocoa flavors, complementing the currant and tobacco character of the Cabernet. Medium full-bodied, full ripe tannins and moderate acidity. Pairings: The 2002 Dulcet will complement grilled meats, roast duck and cheeses such as Dry Jack, Manchego or aged Gouda. orange dotted line Winemaking The grapes were handpicked at optimal maturity and crushed into stainless steel fermenting tanks. Fermentation lasted 7-10 days, with peak juice temperatures reaching 85°F. The must was gently pumped over/punched down 2-3 times per day to carefully extract aroma and flavor components. Pressed at dryness, the individual vineyard lots were transferred to a variety of barrels for malolactic fermentation and extended aging. The final blend was determined just weeks before bottling. Vintage Notes In 2002, moderate to cool summer conditions gave way to a heat spell in mid-September that accelerated ripening. Fortunately, the first two weeks of October saw a return to lovely fall days, and the grapes achieved near perfect maturity, with excellent balance and bright, ripe fruit flavors. Varietal: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Syrah Appellation: 100% Napa Valley Alcohol: 13.6% Aging Potential: 4-6 Years
