J. Davies Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

Still slightly austere, but displaying promising potential, this 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon from Diamond Mountain offers up subtle notes of creme de cassis, loamy soil, tobacco leaf and spring flowers that intensify as the wine aerates. It is medium-bodied with a structural profile similar to a Bordeaux Medoc, good tannin, excellent fruit and an elegant as well as authoritatively flavored personality. This youthful 2002 should be forgotten for another 4ndash;5 years and drunk over the following two decades.

J. Davies Vineyards:
“Bright aromas of boysenberry and cassis combine with mulled spice, orange peel, and cassia bark. The palate is dense, complex and fruitful. Wild blueberry and blackberry mingle with clove and black tea spice, which are seamlessly brought together with integrated tannins that sustain a long and luxurious finish.” - Hugh Davies & Sean Thompson, Winemakers

This cabernet from the family that produces Schramsberg is potent and hyper-ripe. Black tannins dominate the wine in its youth, but there's redder fruit to cut through that darkness and last. Decant a bottle to enjoy its luscious texture now with a steak, or cellar until 2010.

Only the second Cabernet release from this famous (as Schramsberg) bubbly house. This is a dense, dry, tannic mountain Cabernet, rich and long in blackberry fruit. It's drinkable and probably at its best now due to soft acids.

Elegant, restrained mountain Cab with an astonishing purity of fruit that packs layers of raspberry, blueberry and cassis flavors. Subtle toasted oak and forest floor underlie the massive power in this opaque, brooding wine. Great aging potential in this top-quality California red.

The Schramsberg sparkling wine owners jumped into the Cabernet game a few years ago, and it was an impressive debut. The '03 shows they're in it to stay. It's a tight young mountain Cabernet, pert in chewy tannins and acids, yet beautifully structured, with impressively ripe flavors. Despite the powerhouse fruit, it's elegant. Best now-2020.
