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...

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)

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...

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...

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 Turnbull Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Back In Stock!
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)

2002 Gibson Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia
Back In Stock!
95 points Wine Advocate: "While hardly a bargain, no one should complain about the screw cap-finished $45, 95-point 2002 Shiraz. 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. Gibson has fashioned an opulent, rich, blackberry, charcoal-infused, full throttle 2002 Shiraz offering adequate acidity, a wealth of fruit and gl...

Soft undergrowth and smoked vanilla bean, stretches out and then gentle fades. Love it. The winemakers Joel Aiken and Jeffrey Stambor were working together at this point, with a mix of American and French oak for ageing.

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...

95 points Wine Advocate: "The 2002 Riesling Auslese Kiedrich Gräfenberg bursts forth with highly expressive smoky botrytis aromas. On the palate, this broad, medium-bodied, satin-textured beauty is densely packed with mangoes, passion fruit, apricots, and a myriad of spices. Rich, immensely concentrated, and impeccably balanced, it also possesses an extensive finish. (PR)" (02/2004) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Delicious.

98 points James Suckling: "At first deep, dark and mysterious. Just like the Nikolaihof cellar, where this dry riesling spent 16 years in barrel. 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)

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Pure perfection in red wine, the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select is world-class in every way, and it’s such an incredible tasting experience. Still deep ruby/plum-hued, it offers a sensational array of darker currants, truffly earth, camphor, chocolate, and assorted spices to go with a full-bodied, lavish, opulently textured style on the palate. Drinking at point, with both fresh fruit as well as plenty of secondary nuances, it shows the heights Napa Valley Cabernet can hit. " (02/2023) 100 points Wine Advocate: "In con...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Only produced in the best years, such as 2002, this is a 60-40 blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Grand Cru vineyards.

(RV)" (12/2015) K&L Notes: After 20 years of ageing on the lees, this fabulous bottling from vineyards formerly owned by Krug has just been released.

This compelling, black/blue-hued offering from 75-year-old Syrah vines tastes like blood of the vine. An extraordinary perfume of flowers, creme de cassis, blackberries, roasted meat, new saddle leather, and earth is followed by a wine with sweet tannin, sensational concentration, full body, an unctuous texture, and a full-throttle, tannic finish.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2002 Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (96BH, 94VN, 92WS, 91W&S). Burghound: "The expressive nose is now fully mature with notes of wet stone, soft white orchard fruit and green apple hints that introduce beautifully detailed and still impressively intense medium-bodied flavors that have mellowed considerably, all wrapped in a balanced, long and attractively vibrant finish that is tangy, clean and dry. I quite like the sense of refinement as this is at once classy and pure. While the '02 Corton-Charlemagne will certainly hold at this level for years to come, for my taste it has arrived at the front edge of its peak drinkability. Lovely juice." (01/2014)

93 points Int'l Wine Cellar: "Exotic aromas of ripe pineapple and honey. Superripe and intensely spicy, with firm-edged acids giving the wine a slightly more aggressive character today than the Heimbourg.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2002 Krug Brut Champagne (100JS, 100WE, 98DC, 97RP, 96WS). Wine Enthusiast: "This is a fabulous wine from the greatest Champagne vintage so far this century. Still young, it blends almost equal amounts of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay fleshed out with Pinot Meunier. The minerality and the rich apple and green fruits are balanced, and acidity cuts into the wine with a pure, perfumed line of freshness. (RV)" (12/2016)

Bid on this bottle of 2002 DRC Domaine de la Romanée-Conti La Tâche Grand Cru (97RP, 97WS, 96BH, 96ST, 95JG, 95VN). Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the La Tâche vertical at The Square. It was initially difficult to choose between the 1999 and 2002 La Tâche, but in the end the former just ascended to the stratosphere, while the latter simply cruised, albeit at a very high altitude. Now at 13 years of age, there is just a slight bricking on the rim. It feels a little more forward than the 1999–a stylish and personality-driven bouquet with predominantly red berry fruit interlaced with warm bricks and undergrowth (much more so of the latter compared to the 1999). The palate is beautifully balanced with exquisite tannin, perfect acidity and an effortless, you might say easygoing personality. That is deceptive because it is a complex and utterly harmonious La Tâche that is the epitome of elegance. Unlike the 1999, I would broach this now with an hour's decanting. Wonderful.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2002 Huët "Le Mont" Vouvray Demi-Sec (93JG, 93WS, 92ST, 92VN). Wine Spectator: "The lush almond, cream and spice aromas lure you in, then the rich, off-dry quince, persimmon, fig and white peach flavors knock you out. The best part? The ripe, tangy acidity wakes you up for an echo of orange peel and clove while keeping it all crystalline in texture. (JM)" (05/2004)

Bid on this bottle of 2002 Domaine Dujac Bonnes Mares Grand Cru (94JG, 94RP, 93BH, 93VN, 92JM). Wine Advocate: "Sumptuous scents of candied black cherries, licorice, sweet earth, and mocha can be discerned in the nose of the exceptional, medium ruby-colored 2002 Bonnes Mares. Profound waves of red fruits, ranging from jammy cherries to candied raspberries, slather the palate and remain in evidence for 40 seconds or more. This seamless, medium-bodied wine admirably juxtaposes power with elegance as well as super-ripeness with freshness and balance. (PR)" (06/2004)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2002 Joh. Jos. Prum Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett (90WS). Wine Spectator: "Residual CO2 lends a firm, airy feel to this slate- and lime-infused Riesling. Though lightweight and sleek, its flavors permeate the palate. Fine length too. Drink now through 2010." (03/04) According to Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The white fruit, gun flint, and mineral-scented 2002 Riesling Kabinett Graacher Himmelreich is a focused wine. Copious quantities of melted slate, minerals, and flint are intermingled with quinine in this effort’s complex personality. It is intensely flavored and reveals a long finish." (02/2004)
Current Bid: $92.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2002 Karl Lawrence Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (91RP). Wine Advocate: "The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a dense ruby/purple hue, a more elegant mouthfeel, softer tannins, less power than the 2003, but more seamlessness, elegance, and finesse. (RP)" (12/2006)

Bid on this bottle of 2002 Pride Mountain "Reserve" Napa Valley Claret (96RP, 94ST, 93WS). Wine Advocate: "The 2002 Reserve Claret (two-thirds Merlot, one-third Cabernet Sauvignon and a tiny dollop of Petit Verdot) is the most flashy, exuberant and flamboyant of this trio. Close to full maturity, it offers complex, intense, pervasive notes of unsmoked cigar tobacco, licorice, graphite, spring flowers, blueberries and blackberries. Gorgeous ripeness, full-bodied opulence, decent acidity, and ripe, silky tannin make for a hedonistic as well as intellectually provocative wine. This rich, mountain-styled proprietary red can be drunk now and over the next 10-12 years. (RP)" (06/2012)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2002 Moët & Chandon "Dom Pérignon" Brut Champagne (98VN, 97DC, 97JS, 96W&S, 95RP, 95WS). Vinous: "The bouquet was immediately stunning for its audacity. I had never tasted anything like it. Two thousand-two was a year marked by extreme ripeness in the Chardonnays, and that opulence has always been a big part of the wine’s profile. Today, what strikes me most about the 2002 is its timelessness. That youthful opulence remains, yet the 2002 is still vibrant, almost shocking in its freshness. Apricot, ripe peach, tangerine oil, butter and dried flowers all build towards a captivating crescendo of aromas and flavors that saturates the finish. (AG)" (12/2022)

Bid on this bottle of 2002 Araujo "Eisele Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (99RP, 96WE, 95ST, 95WS).

Araujo has enjoyed an incredible string of top-notch vintages from 2001 through 2005 and again from 2008 through 2010. Extremely youthful at age ten, the 2002 is a candidate for perfection. Its dense blue/purple hue is followed by abundant aromas of cassis, incense, crushed rocks and spring flowers. Full-bodied and opulent as well as pure, rich and authoritative, with abundant but beautifully integrated tannins, this opulent, plush 2002 can be drunk now or cellared for another 20-25 years.

Vinous: "One of the most pleasant surprises in this tasting, the 2002 Latour is just beginning to show the full breadth of its aromatic complexity, but it is also has more than enough depth to drink well for several decades. Tar, graphite, incense and smoke open up in the glass in a Latour that leans towards the more delicate, feminine side of things. Silky tannins add polish and creaminess through to the finish. The 2002 is surprisingly delicious today for a young Latour, but it also has the pedigree and density to age nicely for decades. (AG)" (07/2016)

Round and generous but also elegant and refined on the palate, this is a pretty sweet but also saline, vital and finely spicy, even tannic Vouvray with a long, saline and aromatic finish with ripe and stewed stone fruit aromas on the aftertaste. The 2002 is slowly starting to reach its perfect maturity that will keep for many years, if not decades. (SR)" (03/2023)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2002 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore (OWC - 92VN) in original wood. Vinous: "The 2002 Ornellaia (magnum) is a modern-day equivalent of the 1994, which is to say a very pretty wine where all of the elements are beautifully-balanced within the context of small vintage. Still, the wine’s sheer concentration and sense of harmony are truly remarkable, especially considering the cool, rainy conditions that affected Tuscany that year. In the magnum format, the 2002 Ornellaia is particularly impressive. There can be little doubt that much of this wine’s success, as well as that of the other lesser vintages that followed in this flight (2003 and 2005) can be attributed to the stringent selection of fruit and wine that the estate introduced in the late 1990s. In 2002 Ornellaia is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc.(AG)" (12/2009)

Of the 2002 Domaine Marquis d'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru "Clos des Ducs", Vinous writes: "Harvested 19th-24th September: A very distinctive nose of spice and cinnamon.

Bid on this bottle of 2002 Spottswoode "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP, 100TWI, 99JD, 94DC). Wine Advocate: "In 2002 very small yields produced only about 3, 000 cases at 14.7% natural alcohol and a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Cabernet Franc. This wine is going from strength to strength since I first tasted it prior to bottling. Now a perfect wine, the incredible perfume of blueberries, black raspberries and cassis, along with white flowers and camphor is extraordinarily fragrant and intense. That is easily matched by the magnificent full-bodied richness and compellingly layered mouthfeel of this wine that is rich, full-bodied and a still youthful vintage that remains capable of another 25-30 years of cellaring.
