Andrew Geoffrey Cabernet Sauvignon 2002
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Diamond Mountain District|
Lacking perhaps the sheer opulence of the '01, this estate Cab compensates with ageworthiness. It's bone dry and stiff in tannins, with a new-oak veneer sheathing black currant and cherry flavors. It's so rich and balanced that it should have no trouble developing for a decade.
Complex and engaging, with its rich range of flavors, offering a mix of herb, dill, mint and currant, turning supple and polished at midpalate and finishing with a firm core of ripe tannins. Decant or cellar short term. This was the best of three bottles. Best from 2007 through 2012.
