Awful looking bottle I bought from Cellarsearchers for $10 - leaked, crusty, cork had been seeped past. Not a pretty sight but $10, lets give it a try. Fair amount of solids in the bottle. Originally a reddish color with little bricking. Deepened over the hour. A touch acidic early but that went away and this became a wonderful, mature cab. In complete balance. Fruit was on the plum side with a touch ofblood orange. Some leatherwith a silky smooth finish. Wow!
Deep dark colour with no brick. Was a little watery when it was uncorked. Decanted for an hour or so. Had a real nice nose. Lots of fruit and had a long smooth finish. Drank with a 1990 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection, 1990 Opus One, 1980 Joseph Phelps Insignia, 1987 Clos du Val Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, 1987 Inglenook Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Cask, and it was the wine of the night. A great wine, wish I had another one.
