*Two Stars* In a vintage that is showing mixed results, Phelps has somehow found the key to success with its Cabernet. Its impressive aromas of cocoa, crème brulée, ripe black cherries, currants and rich, loamy notes reach for the sophistication of the top Napa Cabernets while its caramel-enriched, deeply fruited flavors come wrapped in a well-woven spine of firming tannins. Ignore temptation with this one and put it away for five years.
A rich, dense and deeply concentrated young Cabernet, with layers of currant, plum, spice, cedar and blueberry notes that are tightly focused and supported by firm, ripe tannins. Impressive also for its balance and amplitude, it should reward short- to medium-term cellaring. (JL)
The realistically priced 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon offers rich aromas of black currants, smoke, earth, and herbs. (RP)
Good ruby-red. Ripe aromas of blackberry, blueberry, truffle, licorice, cocoa powder and charred oak. Concentrated and firmly built, with flavors of sweet dark berries, tobacco, leather, game and currant leaf. Finishes with dusty, fine tannins that still need a year or two to harmonize with the wine's fruit. (ST)
