Had it Musso & Frank for like $60...great deal at old classic and the Fettuccini Alfredo (invented here) was pretty damn good...light with right amount of cheese and soft chewy noodles! Wine went well too!

Black cherry, cranberry, raspberry, dusty leather, baking spice, smoke and vanilla. Good acidity and moderate tannins.

The reserve offering from Benton Lane in the vintage considered by many as the best ever in Oregon. Dark and perfumed, and dominated by a smoky black cherry and toast note. Secondary dark chocolate, cherry pipe tobacco, cured meat, and leather add to its darker than usual persona.

Nice opening with red currants, dark spiciness, aged saddle leather, and some acidity
