This is what cab is all about. I feel grateful when I have the opportunity to try California Cabernets from the 70s. This from a 3L - pulled from the Montelena library. Gorgeous fruit with healthy development but given the bottle and impeccable cellaring I think this is only middle aged at this point.

Deep, raisinated plum, black cherry, tobacco, green pepper, crushed stones, dusty dry brown soil. Still had lively acid and very fine tannin. This was something special.
