Joseph Phelps 2002 Backus Cabernet Sauvignon (Oakville)

Right up there with the best of the ‘01 Napas. Smooth and polished, with a velvety mouthfeel that conveys cherry and blackberry flavors, without heavy extract. Oak plays a supportive role. The overall impression is of elegance, power and extreme balance. The tannins are soft enough for immediate drinking, yet should protect this wine through at least 2015.
