(2002 Vintage) The 2002 Tierra Mar shows a deeply saturated purple-red color. On the nose, the classic blueberry, raspberry, and blackberry fruit are noted along with vanilla, white pepper and a mineral-driven pencil lead component. The tannins are soft and ripe, integrated with the fruit and the mineral notes. The wine is rich, full-bodied and balanced, while accurately expressing the noble characters of the grape.
