- 2002 Bressler Cabernet Sauvignon - USA, California, Napa Valley, St. Helena (4/20/2019)
Obtained when first shipped from someone who bought mail order in trade for something I bought mail order, but I do not know what I traded. Double decanted at about 3 pm, recorked and brought to a Passover Seder. Drank it at about 6pm. Very nice California Cabernet with mostly resolved tannins but it was just barely taking on tertiary flavors. The age was what it lost - disjointed baby fat - not yet what it gained. Nice fruit and some earthy mix of mushrooms and herbs. There was acidity at the back end that meant the wine did not die a soft and undistinguished death, thus leading to a long finish. Maybe 5-8 more years until it peaks. (92 pts.)
