Quite thin. Nice nose. Didn't last.

An expanse of fruit, down the middle of Cabernet profile. A kiss of dust and leather on the nose to remind you it was harvested 26 years ago. Amazing fruit, cocoa, acid, balance. The finish is nearly two minutes. Just try not to smile. Happy Mother's Day!

Really in a great spot right now, loved this for its perfect balance and mature complexity. Not to mention its drinkability from time softening the structure and it's inherent lower alcohol.

Great wine, fruit preserved, some structure and great balance. Can still age for a few more years.

Still lots of dark berry fruit and nice acid. Not half bad.
