Tasted while watching the appalling movie, Bottleshock. Beautiful and lively at well over 40 years of age. Good job, Joe Cafaro! — 4 months ago

Totally over performing bottle!


Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2000

Could have gone another 10 without breaking a sweat. Cedar, raspberry puree and just that flavor/characteristic that age brings to Cabernet. Those of you who know will understand but others just know that years of age don't compare to decanting. — 3 years ago


Napa Valley Merlot 1975

1975 Chappellet Merlot made by Joe Cafaro (their winemaker after Togni and before Corison) The reason I drink and secure aged wines. The group's #2. Developed gravely with air and continued to change throughout dinner. — 3 years ago

Iron Oak Vineyard Merlot 2002

Dark red/black fruit and still has very firm tannins. Black cherry nose, dusty tannins and soft finish.
Has a Bordeaux profile, reminds me of Cafaro.
