Tuesday, November 19, 2013 - 2002 is a BIG vintage in Cali and this wine is a good example of that. Inky purple color. Rich nose of cassis, meat (sautéed chicken livers), leather, some wood spices and a hint of chocolate. The nose is much more Cab Sauv than Cab Franc even though the proportions are close to being equal (of course the Dare Cab Franc is nothing like a Bordeaux Cab Franc). Black raspberries wrapped in melted valrhona chocolate on the palate. The finish shows a little orange rind. A bold, ripe masculine wine.
