The youthful 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon's dense ruby/purple color is followed by classic aromas of creme de cassis, white flowers, crushed rocks, and a subtle touch of wood. Medium-bodied with a sweet attack, firm tannin, and beautiful purity, texture as well as length, it will benefit from another 1-3 years of cellaring, and should keep for 12-15+ years.

A supple, graceful style that serves up a complex mix of cherry, currant, herb and plum-scented fruit, picking up a light toasty oak and mocha note midpalate and finishing with a long, lingering aftertaste and round tannins. Drink now through 2013.

The rocky soils of Pritchard Hill above Napa Valley produce some of the region's most collectible wines, and Chappellet, founded in 1967, is one of the area's established producers. The warm, consistent growing season combined with strict control of the crop allowed winemaker Phillip Corallo-Titus to produce this graceful yet complex wine.

Elegantly styled with a wonderful sense of balance. Offers a complex core of currant, anise, sage and a splash of vanilla and mocha, finishing with ripe, fine-grained tannins that flex their muscles on the finish. Best from 2006 through 2012.

A young, tight, closed mountain Cabernet that should follow a graceful aging curve. Pours inky dark, giving off muted aromas of oak, forest floor and wild blackberries. Dense and tannic now, with rich fruit just waiting to emerge. This clasically proportioned wine should begin to be drinkable after 2010.

Concentrated aromas of black cherry and boysenberry fruit fill the glass. Nuances of dark chocolate and roasted coffee, along with the element of spice and toast from the oak aging, add depth and richness to the nose. On the palate, the sweet, well-defined fruit is bolstered by full, rich tannins, giving enough structure for long-term aging. A layer of sweet oak adds spice and complexity, while firm acidity gives brightness to the lingering ripe fruit finish.

With ripe, fleshy currant, black cherry, herb and cedary notes, this is an elegant wine with flavors and texture that grow on you, finishing with excellent depth and firm tannins. Drink now through 2010.
