Rich red syrupy fruits, plum, earth, and whispers of mint on the end.

Off the reserve wine list at Pursuit Wine Bar on H Street for $83.00. Deep and dark ruby red. Layered nose with mushrooms, dark spices, a touch green, herbal, black currants and plums. Medium plus tannins (6.5/10) and medium to medium plus bodied. Really enjoy the kick of nutmeg on the palate with layers of blackberries, cassis, dark spices, crushed gravel and forest floor. Long finish and well rounded. Very surprised, got better with some air time. Drink till 2023.

1965 Vintage. Not to often you see this one, and it tasted great. Alcohol was low compared to today's standards and I can assume that's why it was still has structure. For me it was a great experience.

Super classic. Still restrained, but powerful. For the cellar or right now.

Heitz decided not to make any Martha's Vineyard or Trailside Vineyard designated wines in the 2011. Instead they put those grapes into their Napa Valley Cuvee and the Quality really shows. Gorgeous cassis and herbal eucalyptus notes. This goes to show that great Cabs were still produced in 2011.

Approachable young, not as heavy as I thought it would be. Good stuff.
