Nice poise and balance. Plum, cherry and strawberry. Fresh but balanced. Pretty.

If new Napa cab tasted like this, I'd actually drink it. 1985 vintage, currant and tobacco, mature but a lotta life left, even on night 2.

Has held up nicely. Nice acidity and still showing some fruit. More red than black fruit, warm fermented red and black cherries with some pomegranate essence. A great floral bouquet, dried white roses and a light honey note. Turned moist topsoil and forest earthiness. Soft tannins with a lengthy, leathery, cedar oriented, acidic finish. The tertiary notes are slightly outweighing the fruit. This was probably better 5-10 years ago. It still has some life but is on the decline.

1985 reserve. Still drinking quite well. Very nice cab. Not as fruit forward as modern cabs but has great backbone and subtle finish. Black cherry smooth great mouth feel. A well made wine which will continue to age.
