No detailed notes as we were out to dinner with friends. However, a very classic example of Randy’s Cabernet. This 86 no different. Still in youth form with another 10 plus years of life.

Very nice bottle and oldest I've had to date. Dusty and dirty, with some saddle leather and oak on the nose, surprisingly still alive with some red fruit on the palate.. Still spry for a 29 yr old!

Still a monster and it isn't even the Howell Mountain. Blinded some colleagues on this and they took it to Bordeaux.

Absolutely stunning. Really shows the patience of old school vineyards.

What a smooth wine ! Everything is in the right place. Not much to say, a great 30 years old CA cab that make you keep pouring. ..

This was so much fresher than a bottle a few weeks ago. The nose was all black cherry and mint. The palate had that plus cedar. Tannins are fully resolved. Yum.
