The Wine Report
91 points

“An intense ruby, this wine’s smooth character, balanced full body and ‘gritty tannins’ had one panelist predicting it would become ‘a champ in the future.’ Dark fruit, smoked oak, black pepper, vanilla and chocolate aromas danced through the nose. Flavors of dark fruit, mint, cherry-vanilla soda, red licorice and sage skipped through the mouth. With its ‘sumptuous’ mouthfeel (despite a bit of sediment), this enjoyable wine will soften with age. The finish swayed through layers of ‘vibrant’ fruit before lingering on ‘shades of earth.'”

“Hail the Cabs of 2002”

“From Napa’s Diamond Mountain District, this wine was the “bargain pour” of the tasting. Very friendly for a big wine, it offered a heady floral and berry nose and a vivid ruby color. A touch of black pepper, a whiff of anise and plenty of tobacco and leathery notes were hallmarks.”

Panel Pick

“Dusty blackberry, raspberry, coffee, vanilla, cedar and pencil lead in te nose; lots of black cherry on the palate; bright acidity; alcohol in balance; good with food.”
