  Bressler Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting notes from wine reviewer, Robert Parker, Oct. 2004: "The outstanding 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon (the finest of the first three vintages) exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as a fragrant bouquet of cedar, smoke, black currants, sweet plums and cherries, and a hint of loamy soil. "Broad and fleshy on the palate, with beautiful purity, nicely integrated acidity and tannin, and a succulent, concentrated finish, this 2002 should be accessible young, yet age nicely for 10-15 years. This is an estate-bottled 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that is aged in 100% new French oak for 25 months prior to bottling."

The nose is bright and vibrant with notes of clove, loganberry and caramel, as well as some plum and raspberry jam. The color is a deep inky blue/black. In the mouth, the wine shows many levels of complexity with blueberry flavors, milk chocolate, and a hint of a smoky, coffee quality. There are notes of licorice and almond on the finish. This is a nicely balanced wine, and we have enjoyed it with meat dishes as well as hearty pastas. If you are in the habit of decanting wine, this one is a good candidate, and will benefit from an hour or more exposure to air.

Tasting notes from Mia Klein: Brilliant ruby/purple coloration and a medium-full body. The 2001 Bressler boasts a wonderfully sweet bouquet of black cherry liquor, blueberries, white chocolate, minerals, and red roses. You will find a wine of fine balance, purity, seamless character, and an elegant classy style - yet with real power and structure. Flavors of black currants, blueberries, wet stone, tarragon (minty herbs), graphite, and beautifully integrated toasty oak grace the palate. The finish of 25-30 seconds is filled with flavor. Over all this wine is very well built and should drink well over the next 15 years. Like many of the other 2001 Napa cabs, this wine was shut down in its infancy. It is just beginning to come out of that phase will probably reach its full potential in another 6 to 18 months.
