2002 Blankiet "Paradise Hills Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1020748 98 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This beautiful hillside vineyard is situated behind the Dominus Estate in Yountville. The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Paradise Hills Vineyard (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) has turned out even better than I predicted seven years ago. Made by Helen Turley when she was the consultant at Blankiet from tightly spaced, steep hillside vineyards planted by her husband, John Wetlaufer, it exhibits a beautiful nose of flowers, high quality unsmoked cigar tobacco, creme de cassis, chocolate, espresso and blueberries. Extraordinarily young, fresh and fabulously concentrated, this wine still impresses with its intensity, complexity and youthfulness. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2012)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Good deep red with a solid core. Some superripe notes to the aromas of dark berries, violet, licorice, espresso, fresh herbs and exotic white fruits. Superconcentrated and opulent, with a liqueur-like quality but also surprising juicy lift, minerality and savory complexity for a wine with a pH of 4.0 and the lowest acidity of all these vintages. This, too, is still a baby, although the wine’s major palate-saturating tannins are ripe and even. I'd hold it for even more complexity. (ST) 94+ Inner quote mark (5/2015)
