A bit from memory (my apologies), let it breathe for a while (45 min) and then decanted -- this helped. Interesting taste, almost pruney, and dare I say, reminiscent of a Bordeaux. Drink 'em f you got 'em.

August 3, 2015 - Dominated by firm dry tannins, with an undercurrent of blackberry and black cherry. Surprisingly out of character for a 2002 Napa, which generally was open and deliciously fruity. Not ready to drink yet if stored in a cooler. Paired superbly with stewed lamb. But after 5 days of being opened, a delicious fruit finally emerged from its tannic cacoon.
