Friday, September 21, 2012 - Bottle had more in than prior tasters. Definitely old, but still very pleasant. 97 Calif Cabs in my cellar all have life left in them.
Restrained, Bordeaux like for a calif cabernet. Smooth, light mouthfeel, medium finish. tannins are fully resolved. Lighter nose, prior taster noted licorice which is definitely in the nose.
Cherry and some earth, starts opening after about 20 minutes
