96 Points

Friday, December 21, 2012 - Tobacco, blackberry, cassis, mint leaf, cigar box, spice and earthy notes open to a fully mature, soft, supple, round wine with elegant tannins. There is a lot of intensity, richness and balance in this sublime example of fully mature California Cabernet Sauvignon. Tasted blind, I was shocked to find this was close to 40 years old! This bottle was better than the last bottle I tasted. But they pale next to how this wine tasted a few years ago.
