I failed to get that "signature nose" of BV (it reminded me more of Stags Leap Wine Cellars from the mid-80's).

Quite impressed that another one in the group tonight called it out blind.

Blue and plummy, redolent of potpourri and rich wet earth. Drink now!

Nicely aged. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Still very powerful. Vanilla, cotton candy, black cherry with tree. Perfectly balanced. The best 7-80's napa wine I've ever tasted.

George Latour, born in 1982. Sounds like a school friend. This one has volatile alcohol on the nose. Again, just like some school friends. This bottle might not be perfect.

Nice mature wine with a slightly Madeirized nose, a medium to full body with nicely integrated acid, tannin & mature fruit, but not a lot of complexity & a nice medium-length aftertaste.

My dad had this in the back of a closet for decades and finally cracked it. Surprisingly (or not) it hadn't turned and was awesome.
