Smells intensely of old cedar chests, antiques, brown sugar, sawn wood, cherry, mint. Decent acidity, and a faint tug of tannin at the back of the throat. Light and hollowed palate, but persistent and sweetening after it's swallowed. Cigar smoke, fir, coastal forest rain now. Fun to experience.

I'm always amazed at how long lived these old Charles Krug wines can be. I didn't expect too much of this bottle with a high shoulder fill.

Color is garnet to brick at the rim. Nose was initially non-existent but after half an hour emerged with tea, earth and dried flowers. Surprisingly lively on the palate with good length and a smooth, crisp finish. Quite light bodied compared to today's cabs. Flavors of pomegranate, cherry and berry are surprisingly pure and clean.

Altogether a very pleasant drink for a 43 year old mid shelf cab (this was the regular bottling, not the Vintage Selection) from a not great vintage.

This bottle has a nose of red jam, pencil lead, white pepper, and leather. The tannins are subtle and integrated. The finish lingers with a bit of hot alcohol on the palate. Decent.

Had via magnum. Took about 30 minutes for initial funk to blow off revealing deep red fruit and decent balance for a wine of this vintage. Likely at or past peak. Would drikn if I had em. Had next to 1981 Pine Ridge cab(mag)...both showed very well.

Nice wine with a hearty plate of pasta. Needs to be decanted for an hour or two (at least) to open up, but overall a solid Napa Cab.

Gift from a friend. Quite mature, but still alive. Lots of mulch and dried cherry fruit in the nose. Silky in the mouth, but oxidized on the finish. Over the hill, but not all the way down the other side. Label says 12.8% alcohol.

A really nice SB, ton of honeysuckle, tart lemon, kiwi, grapefruit, complex mineral finish. Unless you go nuts with the $$ it does not get much better than this, as far as SB goes.

A bit disappointing from what I remember from the winery tasting, but still a very nice wine. Full-bodied, but dies on the back-end, i.e. all the fruit/flavor is in the front. Perhaps I opened too soon?

Compared to the 2012 Hill Family Merlot, this one didn't stand a chance. Was a very light Merlot, but had a lot going on. Not very earthy, and didn't have that nitrogenous nose or opening. The front was boysenberry and red licorice with a raspberry core in the middle. A little heat. The finish was bright red fruits, without much tannin. Not much going on here, but what was here was rather SOLID. Not an ager. Drink 2015-2017.

90/5/5 Cabernet/Merlot/Petit Verdot. 17 months French/American oak. Medium plus nose shows fresh tobacco, baking spice, obvious oak, cedar, black fruit, graphite. Palate is similar, big style, big oak, savory finish, almost sweet with the vanilla note, black plum, blackberry, medium acidity. I think there are more interesting styles out there these days, but this is still a solid selection.

3/13/2015 - La Cave d'Argent Likes this wine: 92 points

From a bottle generously provided to our tasting group by K.A., this deep garnet wine has an intense bouquet of dark plums, pipe tobacco, anise, earth and pickling spice. Medium-bodied, round, seamlessly alcoholic (12.7%) and with light residual tannins, it delivers flavors mirroring the nose. Layered in the middle and closing long, this nearly 30-year-old wine has held up beautifully. I guessed it to be a comparably aged left bank Bordeaux. Although there are no guarantees with any particular bottle of this age, collectors holding well-cellared specimens will be very pleased. Drink now-2020.

Served alongside a 61 Lafon Roche..I preferred this wine. On the decline, however, interesting. Earthy, wood, secondary/tertiary notes. Still some ( little) fruit.

During PNV week, dinner with the Aloft team and vintners at the home. Finished the evening with this...my first experience with the wine.

Nice to pair with chocolates and richer desserts. Sweet red fruits, some heat on the finish. Not a lot of depth, but nice wine

Saw this one for 24 bucks at the grocery store and took a chance. No idea why, but thought I'd experiment with a 'young release' of 2012 cab. I was pleasantly surprised! This wine is actually quite good. Served PNP. Dark red into the glass. Nose of blackberry. Palate is sweet blackberry and leather up front, with some chalk in the mid-palate and actually was a bit tannic on the finish. This one didn't have a ton of layers, but it did become softer as it opened and was enjoyed slowly throughout about 3-4 hours. I really don't see this one appreciating any more in the bottle, and this is one that doesn't really even need to see your wine refrigerator because it was meant to be taken home from the store and enjoyed within a day or 2. Quite enjoyable actually!! Drink this year to next year.

En magnum. I'm surprised there are no tasting notes on CT for this wine, but there are only 14 bottles shown in holdings. Served about an hour after decanting. Medium brick red that darkened with time. Cedar and wet earth on the nose. Red fruit, with balanced tannins and acid. Mature but not declining. This is an excellent wine with years of life left, but no reason to hold.
