Hint of blackberry, band-aids, roses, leather, tobacco, slight asparagus. Has the big, grippy tannins of a much younger wine. Probably 2 decades easy left here.

An abundance of blue fruit, rose, cedar, leather, and very bright acidity. An excellent example of Napa Valley.

Just a perfect mature CA Cabernet. If you have it in your cellar open a bottle to try. Has a long, long life ahead.
