Spicy, peppery oak aromas lead to a balanced display of earthy currant, cedar and spice, though it thins out on the finish, showing more tannic strength. Drink now through 2007.
A sleeper, the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon boasts wonderfully pure cassis fruit, less wood than its siblings, loads of concentration, and a long, heady finish with considerable purity, depth, and length. Drink this beauty during its first 15 years of life.
Firm and focused, with moderately concentrated plum, spice, and currant flavors extending into a lively finish. Could be richer, but has a future. Best after 1994.
A touch rustic and firmly tannic, it offers a range of earthy currant, anise, herb, sage and cedar flavors that are well-proportioned. Drink now through 2006.
