The profound 2002 Jericho Canyon Vineyard Proprietary Red is of Bordeaux first-growth quality. Loaded with blackberry and cedary black currant fruit, huge body, undeniable elegance as well as purity, and a 60-second finish, this wine may merit a three-digit score in a few years.

Intense, vibrant and focused, with spicy currant and blackberry fruit thatandrsquo;s well-defined, complex and supple-textured. Yet this has the desired backbone of acidity and earthy tannins. Decant. Best from 2008 through 2013.

The compelling 2001 Jericho Canyon Vineyard Proprietary Red is a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, and 19% Cabernet Franc from a vineyard near Calistoga. This superb effort boasts a saturated purple color along with an extraordinary smoky nose revealing scents of roasted coffee, melted licorice, graphite, and copious amounts of blackberry and cassis liqueur. The palate is full-bodied, with layers of flavor, tremendous purity, high tannin, and impeccable richness. For reasons that I could not fathom, this offering brought to my mind some of the legendary Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignons (i.e., the 1968, 1970, 1973, and 1974). Anticipated maturity: 2008-2025.

Saturated bright ruby. Higher-pitched, more primary aromas of blackberry, blueberry, violet, minerals, bitter chocolate and graphite. Wonderfully sweet and suave in the mouth, with good energy and focus. This, too, is carrying 15+% alcohol, but maintains its balance nicely. The tannins here are powerful but refined. Offers very strong potential. (A retaste of the 2001s showed that the '01 version of this wine was likewise sappier and more mineral-driven than the Diamond Mountain bottling, which showed a thicker texture and a note of smoked meat.)

The wine shows a soft ripeness and depth of flavor, yet is balanced, with good acidity. Gorgeous structure; it is already forward and fleshy in cassis, raspberry, cherry, milk chocolate and smoky oak flavors. A touch of funky raw meat adds a complexing note. Drink nowandndash;2011 or so.

Inky purple. Graphite- and tobacco-accented cherry and cassis aromas reminded me of top-end Saint-Julien. Focused, pure red- and black-currant flavors are energized by impressive mineral lift. This remarkably concentrated cabernet finishes with firm but harmonious tannins and explosive sweetness.

Full medium ruby. Superripe nose is distinctly porty yet bright. Then lush and deep in the mouth, with explosive, superripe flavors of blackberry, black raspberry, licorice and bitter chocolate. Boasts terrific sweetness and depth but distinctly bound-up today, even a bit medicinal. Finishes with powerful but thoroughly ripe tannins. Not now as harmonious as it seemed from barrel, but this may well merit a higher score with bottle aging.

Winemaker's Notes:

Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc: "shows a deep purple color and a sweet nose of jammy black fruits intermixed with smoke, licorice, and incense. The wine is ripe, opulent, fleshy and up-front, as so many 2004s tend to be. This full-bodied, velvety-textured 2004 should drink well for 15 or more years." RP
