I had the Frederick Cellars 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon this evening with some minestrone soup and homemade bread. I was absolutley surprised by the wine. Not pleasantly either. Now I may not have Robert Parker’s palate (it has been reported that he can remember every wine he ever tasted!) but it was only five days ago that I tasted this at the winery and it was a completely different wine tonight. First of all it was a lot redder- had none of the brick red color I saw at the winery. It has an overwhelming nose of acetone/nail polish remover. There were flavors of red fruit and cherry with some oak, but it was very thin and sour on the finish. I know there can be bottle variation, but it makes me wonder what was poured at the winery to be honest. I dined with Mrs. Fred and the parents of Fred, and we all agreed generally on the wine. 81 points.
