“From lower Howell Mountain, this 100% Cab has big time tannins and tremendous authority.”
Wine Enthusiast, Cellar Selection
2002 was a year that gave wine growers dedicated to the pursuit of perfection an opportunity to shine. Again, it was a year when having an Estate Vineyard made the difference between outstanding and world class. At Clark‐Claudon we nurtured the vineyard from vine to vine, decided which grape bunches would make the cut and then harvested them as each had individually reached full maturity.
The 2002 harvest was the embodiment of all that Clark~Claudon Vineyards has grown to represent; family, hard work, a consistency of excellence & celebration. The resulting 2002 Vintage is arguably our best vintage to date!
2002 Clark~Claudon Vineyards, Estate Grown, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Continuing a history of distinction, this wine has been creating a buzz from the barrel to the bottle. It was in the top ten per case at barrel auctions during both Premiere Napa Valley and the Napa Valley Wine Auction and deemed the best wine in the room at a recent pre‐ release trade tasting.
This stunning Cabernet Sauvignon first captivates with its dark purple depths, and then intrigues with a flowery bouquet of violets, wild black berries, plums and Asian spice. Layer upon layer, you experience its full body, supple elegance, finesse, perfect balance and Bordeaux style structure. This complex, classic beauty is smooth as silk with a warm, smoky, chocolate finish …lingering, lingering...yummmm…
