Brebler Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

92-94 points Robert Parker: The outstanding 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon (the finest of the first three vintages) exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as a fragrant bouquet of cedar, smoke, black currants, sweet plums and cherries, and a hint of loamy soil. Broad and fleshy on the palate, with beautiful purity, nicely integrated acidity and tannin, and a succulent, concentrated finish, this 2002 should be accessible young, yet age nicely for 10-15 years. This is an estate-bottled 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that is aged in 100% new French oak for 25 months prior to bottling. (Feb 2005)

Welcome to Bressler Vineyards, Napa Valley. We are a very small producer of super-premium Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Because our current production is so small - under 500 cases of estate wine yearly, sourced exclusively from our family vineyard on the west side of St. Helena. Bressler Vineyards is a 5 acre vineyard adjacent to the well-respected Hayne Vineyard made famous by the Turley Zinfandel, and across the street from the highly regarded Beckstoffer Crane Vineyard. Bressler Vineyards began in January 1999, when Bob and Stacey Bressler purchased 2 acres of premium vineyard property on the Napa Valley floor on the west side of St. Helena. The 2005 vintage gave ample rain in the winter, charging up the soil water profile for a very nice growing season. Temperatures were moderate and consistent from early spring through October. Both the mature, established Cabernet Sauvignon vines and the now five year old Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petite Verdot vines produced some wonderful juice. Read less
