Just badass old school wine. This wine has a stellar track record going back decades. So delicious. I've had '92, '02, '11, & '12 this year, all were very prime examples of classic Napa flavors and terroir.

Out of mag. Lucious palate, flawless tannin integration. A bit green but that is only a bonus at the age.

1996 Freemark Abbey Sycamore Vineyard Cabernet.

Beautiful tertiary aromas and flavors, with wonderfully sweet earth and a thin spine of red fruit. Leather and animal musk and everything you might expect from a 21 year old wine. Absolutely lovely.

Still showing beautiful fig, leather and silky tannins on the finish. These wines are so ageable.

Still drinking great. Tasted 1991, 2002, & 2012 with winemaker. Fantastic longevity.
