The core of the 2002 Père de Famille is still Cabernet Sauvignon (77%). Fruit from the Red Mountain vineyards, Ciel du Cheval and Klipsun, dominate the blend with their power and depth. Other Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in the blend came from the Alder Ridge Vineyard bringing length and elegance, and the Boushey Vineyard contributing a bright, gentle fruitiness. Rounding out the wine are a few barrels of Merlot (17%) from both Alder Ridge and Ciel du Cheval. And While it's only 6% of this blend, Malbec sourced from the Alder Ridge Vineyard added juiciness and notes of sweet blackberry and camphor; without it the 2002 Père de Famille would simply be less complete.
