Lovely nose opens up a very mellow cab with tons of blackberry and tar flavors. Velvet on the palate is this wines best feature, but has lost some "umph" in its old age but quite nice as its low in OH. Wife rates 9.2, damn!
Poured several of this '02 Cab (stored in my cellar since purchase from winery) last night for guests, admittedly with some trepidation. Big positive surprise in having nice fruit, round smoothness, although not too deep or complex at this age. But after 12 years and at this price point, who could ask for more? All in all, a very nice performance from a well crafted wine.
