"From the well-known Rutherford vineyard located on the alluvial fan on the west side of Rutherford, the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Bosche Vineyard is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot aged 24 months in French oak. This mature 2002 exhibits plenty of creme de cassis, vanillin, cedarwood, licorice, underbrush and forest floor notes in a medium to full-bodied, richly fruity, seductive style. Although not the most concentrated wine of the vintage, it is beautifully round, elegant, and ideal for drinking now and over the next decade.

Winemaker Ted Edwards produced three impressive wines in the 2002 vintage." (WA)

Winery Notes:
The color of this wine is very dark ruby. The aroma has layers of depth, hinting of dark cherry, black currant, blackberry and cassis. These forward fruit components in the aroma are further complexed with a hint of juniper berry and mincemeat pie. The bouquet is reminiscent of dark chocolate, cedar, cinnamon, and clove. With flavor that is a quite pleasant dark cherry dominance, the finish is very long and complimented by mature, smooth tannins.
