Definitely over the hill, but interesting none the less. New oak still prevalent, tannin fully resolved, old raisiny aged quality has taken over, decayed red pepper. I'm not going to rate this because it's a shadow of it's former self, but still a very interesting exercise in aging California.

Enjoying the 1987. Think this was the last vintage before the brand was sold.

Definite taste of dark fruits but fairly acidic. Let it breathe a bit as it got better with time
