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.

Excellent, tasty on first sip out of the bottle without any decanting etc.

Classic, lovely.

Who gave us this wine?!

Great wine, very unconventionally so for a Cabernet. Typical strong notes of Chocolate, Cherries and Vanilla. The nuanced aspect is the spice that happens when this wine opens up (allow to breathe for 10-15 minutes) - notes of peppers and jalapeños throughout that offer a wonderful complement to the usual depth of a bold California cabernet.

A near perfect cabernet. Round tannins. Hints of vanilla.

Dark fruit on the front with a nice earthy balance and medium tannins on the finish. Not as good as the 2010 but at half the cost a great value.
