This wine is drinking beautifully with concentrated and ripe black cherry, creme de cassis, mulberry, plum, purple fig, violet, black licorice, anise, graphite, pencil shavings, sandalwood, vanilla bean, clove, leather, forest floor, and tobacco notes.
It has an excellent balance of primary, secondary and tertiary characteristics.
On the palate, it has a silky texture and fine-grained tannins. Acidity adds lift. High alcohol contributes to the full body and robust mouthfeel.
It’s made with 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. — a month ago

This 20 year old Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley is drinking beautifully now. Showing a gorgeous nose, that I kept on smelling for a while.
Feels much younger than it actually is, complex and well balanced.
Good right out of the bottle with grippy tannins, and better after a couple of hours in the decanter.
Peaking now and good by itself or with food. Will continue to drink nicely in the next 5 years.
A gorgeous wine. I love these older Napa Bordeaux blends.
A blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc. Aged in new American oak barrels for 22 months. Unfiltered and unfined.
13.8% alcohol by volume.
