Basel Cellars 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon (Columbia Valley (WA))

Winemaker Trey Busch gets more confident and assured with each new vintage, and this is his best cab yet. It's 100% cabernet sauvignon, from the Lewis, Seven Hills and Spoffard Station vineyards. Light scents suggest cherry tobacco, and cherries are the main theme here, ripened to 14.7% alcohol, but balanced, firm and packed with fruit. The blend was done right after fermentation, which gives it a head start at this young age, and the tannins and oak are beautifully managed. Paul Gregutt
