Nose of sage, dusty earth, black cherry fruit, plum, more of the same on the palate, has aged gracefully with lots of complexity tonight, old style 100% Cabernet Sauvignon fruit, medium body, delicious and showing it's quality well tonight, long, long finish. My #1/7
Nose of bell pepper, sage, red berry and black berry fruits, more of the same on the palate, has aged gracefully with lots of complexity tonight, paired with the Chinese Basil Salmon and Vegetables, very delicious pairing, slightly passed it's prime, medium body, suggest you drink up if you own it, long finish.
Surprisingly good, given community's drinking window. Classic old Silver Oak green pepper flavors, but resolved tannins while not flabby makes good drinking with long finish. Don't wait, drink 'em if you got 'em, but enjoy. Assumes good cellaring, of course.
Sweet rip cherry nose with hints of chocolate, oak and forest floor. 1st impression is perfect balance. Coats the entire tongue in smoothness and ends with a round, mineral and cherry finish that goes on and on. That finish also carries pleasant but minor barn-yard notes that compliment it well. Every sip was smooth, elegant and long, changing very little. Will age a bit more since it is so balanced but perfect right now. Its 19 years old and very impressive.
