Very few wines in this world we live in resist time in such a beautiful way. After 50 years, this beauty shows class, freshness and a cue of the power that once it had. Still very aromatic, showing tertiary aromas of humus, dried tobacco, meatness, decayed leaf, and coffee. There is a sense of Tawny Port adding to all that. The palate is ethereal, not heavy by any means, fresh with feminine - yet firm still - structure. Sweetness and savouriness blend in a surprisingly long finish. — 5 years ago

My wine pick of the evening. Everyone went down the road of young Cab, and even Syrah in this one - RDD 2011 is potential cellar material - shows incredible youth in fruit with slow aging characteristics. This stuff was insanely good for this vintage. — 4 years ago
1998 Napa cab. Expected vegetal nose was right on cue. One of the most disparate experiences, nose to palate, I’ve had. The wine was nowhere near green and drank beautifully over dinner with veal chops! We decanted 60 minutes prior and had half an inch of sludge to clean up but wow. So pleased as I had all but given up on ‘98. Plenty of fruit left here! — 5 years ago
