1997 vintage. Great cedar and cherry nose. Those plus some tobacco in the flavor profile. Great vintage and holding up pretty well compared to some of its peers. Got a few more years left of solid drinking. Gawd...how I long for the ‘87 and (especially) the ‘91. That ‘91...that was a James Brown shake your moneymaker special...

1997. Slightly off - very green with strong bell pepper. Not sure this vintage is holding up, despite the accolades.
