Tightly focused on a rich, vibrant beam of blackberry, wild berry and black cherry, this wine is intense and concentrated, finishing with firm, ripe tannins and a long, intricate aftertaste. (JL)
The 2002 Trilogy has a touch of Petit Verdot added. It comes across as an elegant Napa version of a St.-Emilion. Displaying notes of dried herbs intermixed with fruitcake, spice box, red and black currants, as well as a notion of toasty oak, the wine is medium to full-bodied, measured, elegant, and French-like in style. It is not a blockbuster or over-the-top style of wine by any means, but one of restraint and elegance. (RP)
No longer made from just three varieties, this Trilogy has all five Bordeaux grapes. It's complex but young in cassis and oak, with a dry, dusty spread of tannins.
There's so much extract in this wine that it seems blunt when first poured. But the oak and herbal components smooth out with air, and a day later the blend has a silken feel. The extract is still there, now easy rather than tough, an extreme chocolate sport anyone would love to play with roast beef.
