Happy 50th birthday! I always ask what were you doing when you drink a wine this old.

I am told by my Somm buddy who brought this bottle, this is To Kalon fruit even though it is not listed on the label. Excellent fill line. 12% ABV. 👏👏👏

Color is brickish on the edges but the color inside is still beautiful & solid.

This is a wine not to decant or a short one and pour it out w/ 6 people. It does get better in the glass.

The fruit is old but still ripe; blackberries, black raspberries, baked strawberries, stewed plum/cranberries, baked rhubarb, almost watermelon notes, mid berry cola, steeped tea, dry crushed rocks, dry twig, dry tobacco, sandalwood to some cedar, light dark spice notes, dry herbaceous notes, pine bar, some tarriness, anise, dark forest, dry leaves, some v/a-bandaid, dry river stone, decade red, dark, florals, excellent acidity, great evolution, balance, still has tension, with elegance & smart polish that lasts a minute.

Bottle acquired recently from the winery.

They say things get better with age. This definitely holds true with this gem. Lovely finish and perfect in every way.

Reserve Unfiltered Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1991

One more example of why I obsess over 1991 California cabs. Your nose is greeted with the whiff of an antique furniture store that soon gives way to red fruit, cedar and earth. The first thing you notice when you start to drink this gem is the vibrant acidity. The palate follows the nose only to be joined by slow resolving tannins. You cannot ask for a more graceful package. — 6 months ago

@Ira Schwartz 1991 still has classic producers making classic California wines. This is a generalization of course…but you know.

Wow! Makes me wonder about older vintages! Great way to ring in a new year.

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Fruity nose of black fruits, cedar, wild flowers, vanilla, chocolates and spices.

Full-bodied and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with nice complexity and mouthfeel.

Showing blackberries, cooked cherries, blueberries, cedar, licorice, cola, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, spices, black pepper, light earth and bitter herbs.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Rich and extracted. Nicely balanced and fruit forward.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after an hour of airtime.

This 18 year old is showing a great nose at this point.

I had a few vintages of this wine and it is always delicious.

Will continue to drink nicely in the next 5 years.

A great sipping wine that will also pair nicely with fillet mignon.

14.3% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

$200.

Private Selection California Cabernet Sauvignon 2021

It is a dark purple wine, with a nose featuring ripe blackberries and cassis, vanilla, tar, cigar and clove. The palate is quite nice, with cherry, blueberry and raspberry flavors draped with a bit of oak spice and offering a silky set of tannins. I paired it with a rib eye and used it in my skillet mushrooms. The wife gave me a big thumbs up, so I know it worked. — 9 months ago
