95 points Wine Advocate: "Put them all together and you have the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve, a sensational 14,000-case cuvee that is one of the benchmarks for what Napa Valley is capable of achieving. Its dense purple color is followed by copious notes of smoky barbecue, creme de cassis, white chocolate, blackberries, charcoal and truffles. Full-bodied, fleshy and succulent, with sweet tannins in the finish, this 2002 has not yet hit full maturity. Give it another 2-4 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following two decades. I asked t...

98 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fragrant, showing cascades of violets, caramelized new oak, sweet cherry pie, cocoa and cassis aromas. In the mouth, it’s unctuous, and floods the palate with sweet, savory flavors. Has a youthful jamminess right now, which will melt off and refine as time goes by. Such is the elegance and balance that cellaring it for 20 years will be no problem. This is the best Rubicon ever. *Cellar Selection* " (09/2006) 96 points Wine & Spirits: "Perhaps the best vintage of Rubicon to date, this wine grows at one of the best Cabernet Sa...

97 points Wine Advocate: "The 2002 Le Desir, a blend of 53% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Malbec, is surprisingly youthful at this stage. Medium to deep garnet in color, it has singular aromas of grilled plums, chanterelles, oolong tea leaves, dried roses, laurel leaves, leather and saline. The palate is seamless and powdery, with a deep core of fruit, bright acidity and a very long, floral finish. It's very expressive and at an ideal stage for drinking, although it will continue to hold over the next decade in bottle. (EB)" (0...

Praise for the producer from Antonio Galloni in Vinous: "Bucking every trend and modern convention, the wines of Emidio Pepe represent one of the most singular expressions in winemaking today. That can't be too surprising given that Pepe himself is quite a personality. Initially somewhat stern, he seems to live in world long gone by. Pepe doesn't say much except that all his wines are excellent and that he only drinks his own. Fortunately the wines speak for themselves. In a time of increasing convergence these wines stand out for their unique style, art...

94 points Wine Advocate: "The 2002 Mr. K The Noble Man (321 grams per liter of residual sugar and 10.25 grams per liter of acidity) is made from 100% botrytised Chardonnay. Its medium gold color is followed by a wine with honeyed complexity, and huge body, sweetness, and thickness. This effort is never as complex or focused as its siblings, but it is still a phenomenal sweet wine that can stand on its own merits against any great sweet wine made in the world. (RP)" (06/2005)

2002 Clos Mogador, Priorat

Price: $79.99

94 points Wine Advocate: "One of the best wines of the vintage, this is a classic Pauillac that is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Petit Verdot. Dense ruby/purple in color with a glorious nose of melted licorice, lavender, barbecue smoke, black currants, and graphite, the wine is tannic, classically structured with an opaque ruby/purple color, beautiful definition, and a 1996-ish personality. This deep, full-bodied, elegant yet powerful 2002 should age handsomely for over two decades. Some patience will be require...

99 points Wine Advocate: "The nearly perfect 2002 Shiraz is the stuff of legends. It is a 1,000 case cuvée that has been completely fermented and aged in 100% new American oak. An inky purple color is accompanied by a remarkable bouquet of white flowers intermixed with melted licorice, blackberries, currants, figs, and espresso roast. Extremely full-bodied, with extraordinary ripeness, opulence, and viscosity, yet very good acidity as well as excellent tannin providing up-lift and definition, this unforgettable wine can be drunk now or cellared for a dec...

93 points Vinous: "Deep, saturated ruby. Very ripe, youthfully medicinal aromas of black fruits, bitter chocolate and licorice. Large-scaled, fat and full in the mouth, with terrific depth of black raspberry, licorice and chocolate flavor. This has a wonderfully seamless texture with enough supporting acidity to give it lift and shape. Finishes very long, with suave, building tannins and a flavor of Valrhona chocolate. (ST)" (05/2005) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Dense, with a rich array of lively black cherry, plum and wild berry fruit that shows off hi...

87-90 points Burghound: "Fairly heavy reduction mars the nose at present and merges into backward, tight though very rich flavors that possess substantial tannic backbone that is entirely buffered by the ample finishing velvet and mouth coating sap. A delicious and beautifully complex wine crafted in a very understated style - this will require several years of cellar time to reveal its full potential." (04/2004)
Price: $239.99

92 points Wine Spectator: "Very pretty aromas of blackberries, spices and milk chocolate. Medium- to full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and a silky mouthfeel. Still tight but refined and long. Just as I remember. (JS)" (03/2006) 91 points Int'l Wine Cellar: "Expressive aromas of currant, black cherry, leather, mocha, game, black olive and minerals. Suave, seamless claret with a firm edge of acidity. More harmonious now than it was just prior to the bottling last June, but still rather closed and in need of a decade of cellaring. But this is not re...

95 points Wine Advocate: "The impression is one of a structured wine with considerable density, a ruby/purple color, layers of flavor, and a classic overall personality. The wine exhibits pure black currant, licorice-infused fruit, huge body, a viscous mid-palate, and a long, heady finish. I suspect this wine won’t be nearly as charming as the 2003 in its youth, but it hasn’t yet closed down, and I am amazed at just how rich, intense, and full-bodied it tastes even after bottling. This is certainly one of the half dozen or so candidates for wine of the v...

98 points Vinous: "The 2002 Dom Pérignon speaks to opulence and intensity. Rich, layered and voluptuous in the glass, the 2002 shows off its flamboyant personality with flair. Butter, cooked apple and tropically-leaning fruits mesh together effortlessly. Interestingly, with time in the glass the 2002 gains in freshness and energy without losing its essential opulence. The elevated ripeness of the year gives the 2002 Dom Pérignon distinctly Puligny-Montrachet leaning inflections. Chef de Caves Richard Geoffroy adds that August that year was hot and very d...

Connoisseurs Guide: "Outgunned by the richer efforts above, this one is nonetheless attractive in its own right for its ripe cherry fruit tinged with the slightest note of dried herbs and its rich, milk chocolate overlay. It is fairly full in body and has a fleshy first impression at entry but soon gives way to a firmer, drier and ultimately slightly tart latter half and finish. Like its mates, it would seem to want a bit of bottle aging. *One Star*" (04/2006) K&L Notes: Carpenter vineyard lies on eight acres in Coombsville, with deep, gravelly loam so...

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "*** Cellar Selection *** The first impression of this Cab is that it’s way too young. It has plenty of flash in the ripe Cabernet fruit, rich oak, dense tannins and crisp acidity, but those tannins hold the wine in lockdown, and the parts are far from coming together. In serious need of cellaring, this dynamic young wine should begin to be approachable by 2008." (08/2006)

2002 Gibson "Old Vine" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

96 points Wine Advocate: "Aged in 100% new oak (70% French and 30% American), the 2002 Shiraz Old Vine Collection is an amazing Shiraz produced from 92- to 139-year-old vines. Surprisingly, it possesses “only” 14+% alcohol. A deep saturated purple color is followed by aromas of espresso roast, white chocolate, pepper, blackberry liqueur, and melted asphalt. This is a youthful, primary red displaying an incredible wealth of fruit, magnificent glycerin as well as depth, and a monster finish of 70+ seconds. This stunning 2002 should hit its prime in 2-4 yea...

2002 Turnbull Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Connoisseurs Guide: "The deep, well-formed, somewhat youthfully compact aromas of currants, roots and seamlessly fitted oak all serve to give this bottling a fine first foot forward, and its sweet, ripe flavors are very much in line with that fine beginning. If fairly concentrated in flavor and seemingly inviting current consumption, the wine will certainly reward a half dozen years of patient cellaring with an even smoother rendition. *Two Stars*" (04/2005)

A stunning effort produced from 10- to 150-year-old vines, it was aged in both French and American oak. According to importer Dan Philips, proprietor/winemaker Rob Gibson, a vineyard manager at Penfolds for many years, is a knowledgeable specialist in old vine Barossa vineyard sites.

2002 Domaine Robert Groffier Bourgogne Rouge
New!
Burghound: "A fair amount of toasty oak frames earthy and ripe aromas plus impressively intense flavors that offer lovely depth and length. This is quite fine for a Bourgogne. *Outstanding, Top Value*" (01/2004) Wine Advocate: "Aged in one- and two-year-old oak barrels, the 2002 Bourgogne reveals a tangy nose of dark cherries. A sexy, smooth, medium-bodied offering, it has the plush, ample red cherry fruit that made the 1997 so enjoyable, yet it comes across as perhaps fresher and livelier than that wine. (PR)" (06/2004)

96 points Wine Advocate: "The wine of the vintage? There are only 10,000 cases of this extraordinarily rich, dense 2002 that is as powerful as the 2003 (even the alcohol levels are nearly the same, 12.85%) . It is dark ruby/purple to the rim, with notes of English walnuts, crushed rocks, black currants, and forest floor, dense, full-bodied, and opulent, yet classic with spectacular aromatics, marvelous purity, and a full-bodied finish that lasts just over 50+ seconds. Huge richness and the sweetness of the tannin are somewhat deceptive as this wine seems...

Rich, immensely concentrated, and impeccably balanced, it also possesses an extensive finish. (PR)" (02/2004) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Delicious.

Then, a minty freshness develops that leaps out of the glass at you. By some miracle, it manages to taste ancient and lively at once. The finish is very long with great herbal complexity. From biodynamically grown grapes. Demeter certified. Drink or hold."

Wonderfully smooth, graceful gewurztraminer, with no rough edges." (12/2003) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Opulent and aromatic, with concentration and notes of pineapple, apricot and honey, with a hint of green tea. There's an intensity as well as a vibrant structure, so be patient for a year or two. Best from 2005 through 2015." (08/2004)

According to Robert Parker: "I was only able to taste this wine on one occasion, but it appears to be a sleeper of the vintage. A very strong effort for d'Angludet, this 2002 should merit 90 points if what I tasted turns up in the bottle. It possesses a saturated purple color in addition to a big sweet perfume of licorice, plums, and cassis. Surprisingly powerful, with sweet tannin as well as good concentration and length, give it 2-3 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following 12-15 years."
