1982, amazingly this needed time to open up. Menthol and tobacco leaf lead with the finish of warm blue fruit.

Purple violet color with aromatic and very appealing black cherry, blackberry, cassis, licorice, violet, and a bit of roast coffee aromas. On the palate it's harmonious, focused, and long with a supple texture with firm tannins and blackberry, cassis, red currant, flavors with a bit of dark chocolate. Long finish Still young but showing the promise of what's to come; 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc.

Silky fruit that tastes like slipping down a velvet slide into a pool of satin!

1993 Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon - Complex and mature wine, displaying a great potential Cabernet Sauvignon, maybe under estimated , focusing on earthy character - maybe the wine is on its peak

Very nice. Good body. A hint of sweetness at the back.
