    Critical Acclaim:

    The sensational 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc from the red soils of their vineyards planted in the Oakville Corridor on the eastern hillsides overlooking the valley floor vineyards of Screaming Eagle and Rudd Estate. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by aromas and flavors reminiscent of a 4-to-5 year-old wine rather than one that has already hit a decade of age. In fact, it probably needs another 5-10 years of cellaring and should keep for 20-25 more years. It is another example of what will one day be regarded as the “golden age” of Napa Valley for the progress in quality and the world class wines that were produced. A wine of great stature and majesty, the youthful 2002 exhibits sweet licorice, creme de cassis, incense and graphite aromas, and is bursting with potential.

    The Wine Advocate

    A tremendous wine—rich, intense and powerful, yet exhibiting wonderful balance and finesse, with a tightly wound core of earthy currant, blackberry, mineral, lead pencil and cedary oak. Despite its considerable size and density, the flavors gush through on the finish and the structure is excellent.
