Toasty classically California Cab. Youthful in its 22 years.

This is in a great place right now. So , so freaking good. I opened a 97 Napa silver oak the other day and was slightly disappointed. I think the AV is the Mike Tyson of the 2 right now. Drink em if you’ve got em!

Bursting out of the glass. Bright overall with a surprising amount of tannin. Plenty of years left for this!

Better than expected. A bit big & oaky for my taste, but kinda fun. If you have any, drink up soon, it won't last too much longer.

Shockingly young. Took nearly an hour in a the decanter to express. Wish I set aside for first hour or so. Classic Cali Cab. Velvety finish bordering on ensconced.
