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.

Tough call between this and the ‘87. Very similar. ‘87 showed more toasted graham cracker. This still showed an impressive amount of red and black fruit that ended up very Bordeaux like (earthy flavors and dusty tannins).

Quite bright and clear. Some stink and leather. Very pure but a little under compared to the others. Alone- a fascinating wine

Drinking beautifully. Why wait even though this will go another decade. The first of the resurgence vintages at BV. Well done and worth the $90 you may find it for

Past it’s prime, but still good at age 18!

Was lost and then was found in cellar into my belly. Bright fruit and soft tannins.

A fabulous showing from BV, boisterous and juicy it captures the coveted “Rutherford Dust” character in its tannic structure. One of Napa’s most historic wine going strong in recent vintages.

One of my two surprise wines of the night. Wow this is good and from a vintage that always excels but was lost in the shadows of 69.

I was looking forward to this one but sadly it was just way over the hill.
