Lenz Cabernet Sauvignon Old Vines 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Cabernet Sauvignon is slow to ripen and needs an exceptionally good year to produce an exceptionally good wine. Fortunately, this was the case in 2002. We ferment this wine at much lower temperatures than is usual with hot climate cabernets and blend just enough Old Vines Merlot, malbec and cabernet franc to round out this sumptuous wine. The 2002 OV Cabernet Sauvignon is round, lush and smooth across the palate with flavors of tangy red currants, rich black cherries and creamy raspberries. This Old Vines Cabernet will improve in the cellar for 15-20 years. 670 Cases

Medium bodied, with delicate notes of raspberries, blueberries and vanilla on the nose. There's a real baked pie crust taste, and its a very nice, complex, balanced wine. Very nice.

The nose is dense with raspberries, blueberries and plums and a sprinkling of cracked black pepper and oak. Youthful, but ready for drinking today, blueberry, cassis and plum flavors live within a medium-full body red that features apparent, but very ripe tannins. With 45 minutes or so in the glass, black pepper and cinnamon flavors reveal themselves, adding complexity on a linge
