This is a nice 8 to 9 years old Cabernet Sayuignon from Napa Velley. Well balanced, with some acidity. Be sure to decant it for a few hours before drinking and you will like it better. Goes well with beef and BBQ park. I am expecting a bit more from a 2002 vintage cabernet sauvignon.

As an older vintage wine, I was curious as to what this 2002 Cabernet would taste like. The nose was very subdued; old wood and pencil shaving. The palate is a bit rustic with low acidity and smooth tannins. The finish is earthy with no fruit to speak of. This wine, most likely, would have been better 2 or 3 years ago, but right now this Cabernet Sauvignon is past its prime. I must had that a review done in December 2008 is not helpfull. Not recommended.
