Pine Ridge Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

SKU 935


The 2002 vintage boasts lush aromas of blueberry, cherry, blackberry, vanilla and sweet cream. The rich, silky mid-palate is notable for its structure and weight. This Cabernet Sauvignon has an expansive finish laced with flavors of vanilla and blackberry jam. With its firm, well-structured tannins, it may be enjoyed now or cellared for 10 years or more.

Wine EnthusiastThe '01 was a hard act to follow. If the '02 lacks a bit of the rich opulence of its predecessor, it may be a more ageable wine. The tannins are thick yet sweet, covering ripe black currant and oaky-mocha flavors that last through an impressively long finish. Drink this dry, balanced Cab now-2014.

Wine AdvocateMy favorite, the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District, boasts a dense ruby color as well as a terrific perfume of cedar, spice box, black currants, and sweet cherries. Medium to full-bodied, elegant, pure, and rich, it should drink beautifully for 10-15 years.
