TASTING NOTES

"The 2002 Ornellaia (65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5 % Petit Verdot) is an astoundingly good wine considering the vintage. A vibrant dark ruby/violet, it offers suggestions of herbs, tobacco, earthiness and dark red fruit with excellent length and notable structure. Although it doesn't have the concentration or length of the best vintages, it displays terrific overall balance and is undoubtedly a huge overachiever for which General Manager/Agronomist Leonardo Raspini and his entire team deserve much credit."

"Aromas of currants, plums and hints of fresh herbs, rosemary in particular. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a subtle, refined finish. Very nice indeed for the vintage. Best after 2006. 9,640 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Very dark. Good lift on the nose. Very sweet overall - those black cherries again - and without quite the structure of the 2001. There's just a very slight hole on the mid palate - presumably a vintage deficiency despite the strict selection. Stoniness on the finish. But a noble attempt to include some of the terroir effect. 14.5% CS:M:CF 65:30:5 110,000 bottles." JancisRobinson.com
