Soft, ripe and totally voluptuous, showing gorgeously ripe fruit and tannins. Seductive and delicious. Doesn't seem built for the long haul, but defines Rutherford's red stone fruit, and slightly earthy appeal.
No such issue exists with the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Reserve. This youthful, backward effort also exhibits plenty of tannin as well as a dense purple color, and copious notes of creme de cassis, roasted herbs, incense, graphite and vanillin. Full-bodied, dense, rich and broodingly backward, it should be forgotten for five years and drunk over the following 15-20. 91+ (RP)
Excellent balance and richness, with firm currant, mineral, herb, sage and cedary oak notes that are tight and concentrated. (JL)
