Impeccable color! Dark. Very light bricking. Barely any seepage on the cork. Ben nailed it when he mentioned a note of stewed tomatoes. Vegetal upfront, but it channeled some older fig and raisined cherries. Structure still holding.

Stunning wine - thank you so much @David L - the edges were soft with really nice balance- fruit still present - finish was elegant and purposeful- it was past prime by a 6-10 years but so enjoyable

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.

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

Early, but I could see it as a sleeping giant.

Another great Classic Wine Happy Hour in the books! Always a treat to have a designated day each month where guys can pull out some unique bottles!

Amazed at how this is still hanging in there...43 years old! Fruit is almost gone, but there are still some dates, plums, and subdued notes. Pipe tobacco, vanilla, baking spice finish.
@Mark Flesher brought this out and what a treat for everyone!

Good and still holding on with good fruit. Balanced though fading and several years past prime

Think berries and cherries with a lovely long finish.

Showing light cranberry, blood orange. Rather oxidized at this state but holding on to the cedar, vanilla characters well enough on resolution.
