I found this bottle stashed away in one of my chillers. I had thought I had finished off the last of this a while ago. This wine is still drinking great even at 15 years. A testament to this producer! So a happy night enjoying this wine. I have reviewed before so I will not bore you again. #clifflede #napavalley #stagsleapdistrict #claret #redblend — 2 years ago
