    February 21, 2022 - In a tasting of mid-level 1991 Cab-based California wines this red was delightful, placing second. With a big, sweet bouquet of black fruits, vanilla, and spice, followed by a smooth, seamless, full bodied palate of pit fruits (black cherry & plum), cedar, smoky oak, and earthy hints, this wine reveals the continued uniqueness of Napa’s 1991 vintage.

    October 24, 2021 - Medium ruby to garnet at the rim, remarkable that there is no sign of bricking. Blackberry, currant jelly, dusty earth, and a touch of a herbal quality to the nose. The palate is medium to light, with surprisingly juiciness remaining, good freshness, and a light background of tannin holding on. There is still a sense of glossiness from the oak that shows up on the finish along with a reprise of the currant notes. This was a surprisingly lively napa Cabernet given the age and fact that it's not a bottling made to be cellared this long.

    January 6, 2018 - “G8 summit – Old New World” (blind), Wine 2: The wine was medium ruby in colour and offered red fruit, red fruit effervescent powder, black currant, spice, meaty notes and a mild vegetal component on the nose. On the palate, the wine showed red and dark fruit, spice and mint, with good acidity, mostly resolved tannin and very good length. Cellared in ideal conditions, this wine showed very well tonight. My number four of the sixteen wines tasted, some in the group named it their number one.

    September 8, 2016 - I wanted an old bottle tonight and I went deep to get it. In 93 I laid in a case of 91 Robert Mondavi Cab Sav Napa. Tonight was the final bottle, a last tango with an old friend. The previous one, tried in 2014 had spoiled and I wasn't optimistic about this one.
    After twenty in the decanter, I poured and sampled. There was significant browning, but the nose was true, without a hint of barnyard or funk. Just a whisper of fruit left, with plenty of coffee, tobacco and bakers chocolate.
    The pallet was magnificent, elegant, justifying all the trouble we go to in aging these FKR's. Just enough black fruit up front to remind you that this stuff starts out as grapes. The rest is dark spice, minerals, leather & chocolate. The mid pallet extends into an endless finish of anise, tobacco, and hints of clove. Best bottle of the year by far. 94
    Wish I had more,
    Wish I was tall,
    Wish I could share,
    But I'm drinking it all.
    SAYONARA.

    February 9, 2016 - Amazingly good for a wine that should be well past its prime. Plenty of fruit still. Drink em if you got em.
