Tasting Notes on Release: black cherry, licorice, and violets, with hints of sandalwood & cocoa. An elegantly structured wine; soft balance, firm tannins, and great length”.

Vintage Notes: The 2002 growing season was quite friendly to Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa Valley, and the vintage is being held in high regard. It began with a warm and dry Spring (there was no rain at all in April!) leading to an early bud break, with the lack of soil moisture ultimately resulting in small berries and low yields. The crop on our vineyard was lowered even further when a freak, late season frost on April 28 damaged some of the tender shoots. An inch and a half of rain in early May was well timed, giving the vines a drink during the period of shoot growth, but arriving before flowering and fruit set, when wet conditions can interfere with the pollination. The summer was mild, with warm days and cool nights providing ideal growing conditions. Warm weather near the end of September hastened the ripening and we picked on the 29th. The yield was a scant 1.4 tons per acre.

This release totals 250 cases including magnums

While predictions for an early harvest seemed verified by start up dates for sparkling wine and Sauvignon Blanc, we may be closer to normal for hillside Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
