Wine Review: I described "Excellent" wines as those that just blow you away. Their flavors just make you yearn for more. They last forever in your mouth. These wines make an impression that will not forget. These are the wines you brag about. So in Tom Eddy’s 2002 Napa Cab, you have all those qualities. This very dark purple wine opens with a very inviting spicy blackberry bouquet with hints of licorice and blueberry. On the palate, this wine is ultra smooth, quite elegant, and has delicious black cherry flavors that make you yearn for a second glass or bottle. There are hints of spicy blackberry notes as well. The finish of this wine remains elegant and its fine tannins linger for a tremendously long time. This is a very special wine for a special meal. Enjoy it with filet mignon. Cheers – Ken

Winemaker Notes: If there is any doubt in your mind about the importance of cooling coastal nights for flavor retention and color and tannin development in Cabernet, then you’ll just have to try the 2002’s and let your doubts be dispelled. This wine displays rich aromas of blackberry and spice and flavors of cocoa and dark fruits. Huge tannins and sufficient acidity make this wine a good choice for aging, yet it is approachable now.
