Medium garnet color, no bricking, quite a bit of sediment. Wonderdul nose of damp earth, mushroom, and a background of dried fruit. Palate was a bit light with cassis dominating, and earth and tobacco in the background. Finish moderate. Overall, very very nice
TFS: 1979 Napa Cabernets (Tria Fermentation School): nose on this was off-putting. extremely vegetal, with cabbage and eucalyptus. medium bodied palate was much more pleasant, with black pepper and cedar notes. salted caramel on medium finish that leaves some acidity behind.
