The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is, as my notes said, ï¿½a serious, balls-to-the-walls wine.ï¿½ Extremely full-bodied, powerful, and rich, with high tannin, it is a chewy, perhaps less delineated, and jammier effort reflecting the style of the 2002 North Coast Cabernets. Yields were a meager 1.7 tons of fruit per acre, and the final blend includes 99% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Cabernet Franc. By Montelenaï¿½s standards, the 14.3% alcohol is relatively lofty. It should be more approachable in its youth than the more obviously tannic and structured 2001. While the tannin is more noticeable, the fruit is riper, and the wine is more of a heavyweight, although the 2001 has significant size. The 2002 anticipated maturity is 2007-2027.
