#AgedWineTuesday

Dark ruby in color with a brick rim.

Soft nose of red and black fruits, wet leaves, herbs, black pepper, must, tobacco leaf, earth, light wood and dark coffee.

Medium plus in body, smooth and elegant, with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, plums, cherries, light oak, licorice, spices, coffee, earth, cola, light vegetables, herbs, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from the very famous Martha’s Vineyard in
Napa Valley.

This 35 year old is drinking very nicely now. Nice to see how it held up.

Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Elegant and tasty. Showing nice complexity at this point.

A little muted right out of the bottle, and needed a few minutes to open up. Even better after an hour of airtime.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a pizza with prosciutto and arugula. Delish.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

$450.

Less interesting than previous tastings of this case in my cellar...cork was dry and shattered even with Durant...tannic and brutish...mid body never showed up much and day later in decanter was the best cough menthol cough syrup ever :)

Classic eucalyptus/menthol note but that was the only note. One trick pony but I enjoyed that trick.

A sweet spot for Napa Cab. Dried, focused fruit. Great aromatics. Reinforces my love for old Napa Cab

fragrant nose with only the slightest hint of the famous eucalyptus. Rich fruit jam flavor with resolved soft tannins. Classic French styled cab! Bravo.

Wet leaves, eucalyptus, still quite a bit of fruit left (blackberry and cassis).
