Perhaps the greatest Backus made in the last decade, the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Backus Vineyard (1,300 cases) includes a touch of Malbec and Petit Verdot (less than 2%) in the blend.

The monster 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Backus Vineyard is nearly 100% Cabernet Sauvignon (dollops of Petit Verdot and Malbec are included in the blend). Dense and full-bodied, it is nearly primordial in its concentration and brooding backwardness, and should only be purchased by those able to defer their gratification for 5-6 years. A huge wine, it exhibits black fruit, scorched earth, loamy soil, crushed rock, espresso roast, and new oak characteristics. It should last for 25+ years.

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Wine Spectator: A rich, dense and deeply concentrated young Cabernet, with layers of currant, plum, spice, cedar and blueberry notes that are tightly focused and supported by firm, ripe tannins. Impressive also for its balance and amplitude, it should reward short- to medium-term cellaring. Drink now through 2011. (5/31/05)
