Very nice. It has matured well. Tobacco, leather and some subdued blackcurrent fruit. Smooth tannins and a long lingering aftertaste. Yummy! Wish I had more.

Deep purple color, blackberry fruit, slightly acidic. Good mid-palate flavor and finish.

last bottle and it delivered. Strong and youthful cabernet that has plenty of time left.

Drinks more like a Bordeaux cabernet than a California cab. Tobacco and dried fruit.

Nothing to brag about. Taste is run of the mill like CDV has been during these years. Can get same quality with a $25-$30 bottle.

Very good 100% cab - smooth wine with hints of cigar. JS199 brought this one - perfect addition to a dinner party!

Dusty, super dry Cabernet. Consistent. Needed a glass of water along side.

Tasted at winery from magnum. Well-balanced with a nice full mid-palate and medium finish. Obviously a strong vintage for this producer, it is significantly better than the 01, which comes across as more austere and lacking the fruit of the 02. Dark cassis fruit with the trademark stags leap notes of pine tar and cedar. Was told that this vintage was unique in being 100% cabernet sauvignon, whereas other years have been blends. Drink over the next 5-10 years.

Popped & poured. Lots of bright cherries and cassis. Tannins not yet resolved and clearly exhibits Stags Leap dusty characteristics. This is a juicy wine; probably needs a few more years to come together better.

Decanted 30 minutes. First thought was why is this so much better than the '01? More fruit. Dry, dusty dirt, bordeaux style wine. Delicious.

Really nice. Big fruit on nose - dry and well structured; like a bordeaux. Very good finish but short of remarkable. Glad I have a few of these left; should continue to improve for a number of years.

NobleRottersSydney - California (mostly) (Alio's, Surry Hills): [14.5%, cork] {Gordon} Double-decanted four hours earlier, but on this evidence, needs more treatment than that for current drinking. Intense yet tight nose of pure, unadulterated cassis. All ripe fruit, but not a bomb. The palate is rich yet compact, packed with dense, brooding cabernet fruit. Unobtrusive oak. Lots of chalky tannin. Medium-full bodied in weight, intense, with a long, even palate. Great structure and balance. Serious, full-bodied, aristocratic cabernet which needs another ten years to bloom properly. Outstanding.

Didn't decant and didn't let it breathe for very long. Probably should have done both.

Initially very bitter but after about an hour, this wine really leveled off to an enjoyable bottle.

Opened for 1 hr. Acidic at first and then calmed down. Flavors of oak, leather, dusty, soft tannins, smooth. Good medium cab that thins out pretty fast.

This wine really surprised me as I had tasted it at the winery where I purchased this bottle and I didn't remember it being THIS good. A really pleasant cabernet, full of flavor and big--but very restrained on the alcohol.

I was disappointed based on the other reviews. Good wine but not better than that. Oh well.
