These early 90s cabs are hit or miss these days but this was splendid and maybe a touch on the downslope so I'm glad I drank when I did. Tannins are silky smooth and fruit still nicely there. Leather, graphite and cigar box - could be easily confused for a Bordeaux.
Popped & Poured at beginning of dinner and it had a strong "diaper" nose which blew off after a half hour. The bulk of fruit has dissipated leaving soft tannins and a rather narrow flavor profile. The finish was shorter but enjoyable. Certainly past its prime, this wine still has a bit of life left in it, especially for those who enjoy "mature" wines.
