2002 Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Flavor Profile: Aromas of blackberry, cassis, dried cherries and a hint of earth.  Flavors of ripe dark
cherries, boysenberry, spice and a touch of smoke.  An elegant wine that is well-structured, complex and
beautifully balanced.  Tannins are lively enough to hold up to extended aging, but soft enough not to
overwhelm the lush Rutherford and St. Helena fruit.

Food Pairing: This wine brings out the best in stake with mushrooms or cracked black pepper, or a fine cut
of prime rib.  Consider it with fish or meat stews like cioppino or Beef Burgundy.  Leg of lamb, wild game
and rich pasta dishes pair nicely as well.  A great match for any dessert involving rich dark chocolate.

Cellaring Potential: Drinkable at an early age, but will benefit from additional cellaring.  This wine has the
potential to be cellared  8 - 15 years past vintage date.
