The ’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. *Cellar Selection*
My 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.
Complexing touches of mint and herbs and lots of vanillin oak are layered atop curranty fruit in the nose, and the wine shows the same mix in its moderately deep and very well-formed flavors. Carefully structured and ever so slightly smooth on the palate, it is wine that speaks directly to classic Stags Leap refinement and is thus easy to taste even now.
Includes bits of petit verdot, malbec and merlot) Good bright red-ruby. Deep, candied aromas of black fruit liqueur, licorice, mocha, mint and flowers. The slightly exotic candied character carries through onto the palate, which offers sweet, fat flavors of black raspberry, mocha and chocolatey oak. The texture is supple despite a bit of spiky acidity. Finishes with sweet tannins.
