Medium ruby, no bricking. Very leathery nose of mint, menthol, cassis, tobacco. Light tannin, balanced acidity. Quite the decent quaff for a well-stored unheralded $13 purchase in 1989. Not a special wine tonight by any means, but I appreciate the correct, full herbal cabernet fruit and olives, and a dollop of oak-y roundness. Oakville-sourced cabernet, clearly. Bottle #12 of twelve.
