4th Saturday Brown Bagger (Rich & Dana's): Crimson color. Opens with red berry notes which quickly turned to sour dark fruit. Flavors of dark fruit, chocolate and currants. Guessed cab, but was way off on the age. 88+ pts.
4th Saturday group. This was still a tannic beast and not showing any visible signs of aging. Only fruit notes were a bit of plum. If these tannins haven't resolved by now, I wonder if they ever will. Least favorite wine of the night.
Definitely over the hill and not what I would consider a strong year for Oakford. Still had tannin but the fruit had subsided quite a bit. Still has life in it, but wouldn't hold this any longer. Very dark color and typical aromatics for a cab of that age.
Popped and poured. Incredibly fragrant nose. Uniform dark color, absolutely void of bricking. Earthy, rich, flavorful. Very young for its age, fruit still vibrant. Wonderfully aged California Cabernet.
