Etude 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley)

The backbone of this wine is from Oakville and Rutherford. It's a classic Napa Cab from what has turned out to be a fine vintage. There's the velvety cassis and chocolate fruit ripeness you expect, and the lavish oak, but good tannins and acids prevent the decadent flavors from turning flabby. Still, the wine's approachability argues for early consumption.
