lots of mature black fruit with slightly sweet spice and tobacco — a year ago
Takes be back, way back, to a time, a time when olives grew purple on the trees and the sun shone bright. 2015, what a year.... a delicious inky drop that would make. A squid blush — 2 years ago
Drank 4/12/20. Excellent with lamb chops and a red wine sauce.
Plum sauce, blackberry, raspberry, spearmint, soil, and a bit of petrol are easily coaxed from the glass. Flavors of plum sauce, raspberry coulis, tobacco, and mint are backed by medium + well integrated tannin. Drink now and over the next 5-10 years.

Nice earthy aroma. Cherry on the fruits. Good tannins. I like it. — a year ago
Pretty sweet — a year ago
Rated this three years ago. Still holding up beautifully. Decadent, sexy, and elegant. Incredible bouquet. Cassis, dark cherries, blackberries, blueberries, coffee, and chocolate. Amazing wine from a less than amazing year. — 2 months ago
Brought by a friend. Dark tawny and opaque. High pitched fruit forward nose, dominated by black cherries and some dry brush. Tannins still present. Complex and refined. Reminded me of a young Bordeaux that needs more age to gain more secondary/tertiary notes. Good juice. — 3 months ago
Monthly WTF wine group. Special event this month as Ben provided all ‘80s Napa cabs. A few of us chipped in and provided some whites/bubbly.
Middle of the pack out of the wines tonight. Still quite nice with a decent amount of cherry jubilee and cassis. Tied with the ‘86. — 2 years ago
