One of the first case purchases I made when I started collecting right out of college. Turned out to be a killer value at $10-12/bottle. Highly pyrazinic but balanced with just enough fruit.

So, this was a baller. This wine started out amazing...ripe fruit, vegetal and some of the developmental notes, but started out tasting like 10 year old Bordeaux. Unfortunately, it the glass it fell apart quick. So, we went with short pours after that...

1985--amazingly in good shape though fully mature Cabernet. 30 years later and this $12 wine was delicious.

Medicinal at first, with pungent eucalyptus, that over time resolves into bay leaf, inky black fruit, and bittersweet chocolate/oak. A nice change of pace.
