The outstanding 2002 Caravina (1600 cases) reveals sweet tannin along with big, full-throttle, dense, black currant, loamy soil, chocolate, and vanilla flavors. Full-bodied, rich, and impressive, this is no ordinary second wine. Drink it over the next 10-14 years.

Readers looking for value in Napa Valley reds need look no further than Seavey's 2007 Caravina. Last year I wrote that it was the finest second wine they had yet made, and now that it's in bottle, I can reiterate - it is a sensational effort. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged 19 months in French oak casks, this 525-case cuvee is a sleeper of the vintage. This silky smooth, inky/purple-colored wine offers up notes of roasted herbs, cedar, chocolate, espresso beans, and black fruits. Sweet, round, opulent, textured, and fleshy, this beauty can be enjoyed now or cellared for 15 more years.

The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon (a 1150-case blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot) looks to be a superstar in the making. An impressively deep purple color is followed by a sweet nose of roasted meats, black currants, melted licorice, and ... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaking followed classic Bordeaux methods. The juice remained in contact with the skins for an average of 14 days and, following malolactic fermentation, was aged in French oak barrels (50% new oak). The 2002 Caravina Cabernet is 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. The grapes came from vines planted on several different locations of the south-facing hillside vineyard. "The outstanding 2002 Caravina reveals sweet tannin along with big, full throttle, dense, black currant, loamy soil, chocolate and vanilla flavors. Full-bodied, rich and impressive, this is no ordinary second wine. Drink it over the next 10-14 years." Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate: 2.28.05 In this, our fourth year of offering the Caravina Cabernet, we feel the wine has found a specific and following. Lighter and fruitier in its youth, it has no limits to the foods it can be pared with. Caravina means dear vine. The name references our attachment both to all that our vineyard soil produces with great effort, and to our efforts to hand craft the resulting wines with great care. Hand crafting the wine assures the respect the bottled wine so justly deserves. The 2002 Caravina Cabernet is 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. The grapes came from our vines planted in several different locations of the south-facing hillside vineyard. Produced using traditional Bordeaux methods, the wine was aged in French oak barrels for 18 months, utilizing a combination of new and used to enhance stylistic fruit characteristics. Tasting Note The 2002 Caravina reveals sweet tannin along with big, dense, black currant, loamy soil, chocolate and vanilla flavors. The grapes were harvested during the first three weeks in October 2002. 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot Oak: French
