78 in 17. The fruit crushed today marks the 40th anniversary of making cab. So we celebrated with a bottle of 78. Remarkable how the fruit remains integrated. Hardly even any sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Soft and ripe plums.

06 in 17. Was, at first, a little old in the nose. Once decanted it came together- tobacco, prunes, blackberries- French oak.

Great. Bolt tannins, baking spices, and cherry. A tad tight right out of the bottle but opened up nicely.

Nice deep fruit, noticeable tannins and slightly acidic, but left a slightly metallic taste on the finish.

1981 Markham Cabernet - easy going well balanced and holding together nicely.
