2002 Joseph Phelps "Backus" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Backus Vineyard is a massive, youthful blockbuster with an opaque purple color as well as firm tannins (despite the general openness and ripeness of the 2002 Napa Cabernets). Almost overly rich, it has a long evolution ahead of it given its firm tannins and off-the-charts concentration and extract. One has to admire this cuvee for its extraordinary structure and multidimensional personality, but at present, even with airing, the primary aromas of new oak, loamy soil, graphite, incense ...

2002 Staglin Family Vineyard "Salus" Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon (375ml)

Staglin has established themselves firmly in the minds of California Cab lovers as a top-notch cult producer. But it seems their Salus label has managed to fly a bit under the radar. Made by Fredrik Johansson from fruit raised by David Abreau. Thom Elkjer of the San Francisco Chronicle writes: "...once part of the estate that produced Beaulieu Vineyards' historic George de Latour Cabernet Sauvignon--arguably the greatest Cab of the previous century. The Staglins are giving it the treatment it deserves, and it shows in the wine."

2002 Araujo "Altagracia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Everything is about quality, as evidenced by Araujo's second wine, the 2002 Altagracia. A selection of 650 cases that is about two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon and equal parts (about 14% each) Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc, this is one heck of a second wine. A beautifully fragrant nose of cedar wood, flowers, pepper, and spice box along with the telltale red and black fruit soars from the glass. On a much quicker evolutionary track than the Eisele Estate Cabernet, it is supple-textured as well as loaded w ...

2002 Dyer Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a tiny 2.2-acre vineyard owned by Bill and Dawnine Dyer, this blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot is a foreboding, austere, Bordeaux-styled 2002 revealing high tannins and a certain leanness to its personality. The color is a healthy dark ruby/purple and the wine is well-made and elegant, but it appears to lack flesh and concentrated fruit. It will certainly last for another 10-15+ years....

2002 Grace Family Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1L)

91 points Wine Spectator: "Bold and rich, but restrained. Tightly wound now, but manages to push a load of dense blackberry and currant flavors across the palate. Framed by a judicious use of vanilla-laced oak. Tannins are firm yet integrated. Give this youngster time, either by decanting or cellaring. " (07/2005) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of blackberry, bitter chocolate and minerals, with a medicinal aspect and a hint of tarry oak.

2002 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "Cask 23" Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 1.5L

It is fairly full and broad on the palate with fine balance and a mannerly, well-polished feel, and, if a slight touch of last-minute tannin jumps up at its finish, there is no doubt that a few years in bottle with smooth things out completely."

2002 Flora Springs "Hillside Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

It’s a big, tannic, closed wine, dry and astringent. But there’s a gigantic heart of blackberry fruit, and I would be surprised if this wine doesn’t turn into a real beauty by 2010."

From the winery: "Jake's Creek is a two and one-half acre vineyard surrounded by beautiful old, native stone wall with a natural creek running the length of the vineyard's east side.

2002 Merus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine has tightened down considerably since I first had it, which surprised me. Its dense opaque bluish/purple color offers up notes of charred wood and barbecue smoke as well as oodles of blackberry jam, licorice, and camphor. Some graphite also makes an impression in this full-bodied, massive and muscular, yet impressively built and multi-dimensional Cabernet Sauvignon. This cross-valley blend has turned out exceptionally well, but it is still a good 4-5 years away from full maturity, where it should stay f ...

This fabulous, dense ruby/purple wine is a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. It exhibits a deep creme de cassis nose with hints of charcoal, graphite and spring flowers.

Made by Helen Turley when she was the consultant at Blankiet from tightly spaced, steep hillside vineyards planted by her husband, John Wetlaufer, it exhibits a beautiful nose of flowers, high quality unsmoked cigar tobacco, creme de cassis, chocolate, espresso and blueberries.

2002 Beaulieu Vineyards "Clone 6" Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

Along with Clone 4, this is a new wine for Beaulieu Vineyards (the 2002 is the second edition), and it represents a specific and undoubtedly superior selection of Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. The grapes were handpicked, de-stemmed and crushed into small open-top stainless steel fermenters, with a long and slow fermention, after which the wine was settled in tank for a week and racked into new French oak, picking up vanilla and toast components evident in the nose of the tremendously rich and full-bodied wine. Enjoy this herb-influenced, chewy red when young ...

A seriously profound, rich, concentrated red fashioned from 30-year old vines, and aged in 100% new oak, it boasts sumptuous black currant liqueur-like characteristics intermingled with notions of spice box, sweet oak, licorice, and incense.

Red cherry, currant, plum and a floral note on the nose; this struck me as rather Burgundian. Supple, fresh and sweet, with juicy flavors of plum, cherry, mint and flowers. Offers enticing complexity and cut. Finishes with very sweet, fine-grained tannins. The 35-year-old vines here typically yield just a ton and a half of fruit per acre. This benchland Cabernet produces ripe flavors and ripe tannins early, but the St. George rootstock helps to slow down sugar accumulation, notes Corison, who added that this wine has less than 14% alcohol.

Bid on this bottle of 2002 Spottswoode "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP, 94DC, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In 2002 very small yields produced only about 3,000 cases at 14.7% natural alcohol and a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Cabernet Franc. This wine is going from strength to strength since I first tasted it prior to bottling. Now a perfect wine, the incredible perfume of blueberries, black raspberries and cassis, along with white flowers and camphor is extraordinarily fragrant and intense. That is easily matched by the magnificent full-bodied richness and compellingly layered mouthfeel of this wine that is rich, full-bodied and a still youthful vintage that remains capable of another 25-30 years of cellaring. This is a dramatic vintage for Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, and it is always fascinating to taste a top winery’s 2001 and 2002 next to each other because they are both such great years. However, the 2002s tend to be the more flamboyant wines,

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This appears to be one of the great efforts from Chateau Montelena, something I think I was correct about when I gave it an 'in the bottle' rating in 2006 of 95+. It is still an amazingly young wine that came from old vines on the famous St. George rootstock that did not require replanting because of the phylloxera epidemic that swept through Napa in the late 1980's and 1990's. Despite its lofty 14.4% alcohol (high by Montelena standards) and the overall flamboyance of the 2002 vintage, it needs another 4-6 years of cellaring.
