Probably better a couple years ago but still a wonderful wine. Didn’t decant which was the right call here. So deep and inky in the glass. Deep dark red fruit aromatics that just make you smile. Wonderful acid. Finish has just a hint of that wonderful menthol note. Only 13% abv - sigh for the older days of Napa (though it is getting better).

Just had this one with steak dinner. What a combination -- great wine. Hope the '96 is just as good.
