Hess Collection Mt. Veeder Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2002 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Huge nose of blackberry, eucalyptus, and chocolate

Smooth texture on the palate, with mouth-filling cherry pie

Long finish of blackberry cream, spice, chocolate, and vanilla notes richly layered

I highly recommend this wine. I remember enjoying a bottle two years ago at a very nice steak house, and was looking forward to a second look. This bottle had been resting in my cellar for the past two years and looked like it wanted to be opened for a visit from PB of this blog and his lovely wife. We grilled some New York strip steak and enjoyed every last drop of the wine.

Life is too short to drink bad wine. Hopefully we can help you find some good ones. If you see this at a store, grab it. For $35 or so, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better Napa Cab from 2002. Raise a glass!
