2002 Detert Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville - USA, California, Napa Valley, Oakville (5/8/2013)
Opened by Allred. 1st time I have had this wine. This owner and winemaker is Tom Garrett whose family owns 2 vineyards next to Mondavi's To-Kalon. The grapes for this wine come from the Horton vineyard which currently has 35-60 year old vines. 2002 was one of the first vintages that Detert bottled their own wine (their grapes have gone into Opus One and Mondavi Reserve Cabernet for over 20 years before that).
I drank this the 2nd day it was opened. Nose of charcoal and sweet berries. Thick and rich. Sweet dark cherries with currant and coffee. Very young tasting for being 11 years old. Full bodied. 92-93 points.
