Incredibly good. Tons of sheer power balanced by perfect acidity and lovely tannic structure. We were all amazed at how well this wine was holding up.

Beautiful. A prime example of a Napa Cab from the days before muscular ripeness ruled the day. Though teetering towards senility, this 29 year-old wine still delighted us with its youthful memories and joie de vivre, like an aging uncle whose familiar stories are just as enjoyable as the first time you heard them.
