One of the reasons I keep coming back to Chef Norman's 1921 in Mount Dora is for their interesting wine collection. One of the partners has been generously bringing in special bottles from his private collection. This one was beautifully aged and enjoyed by our guests.

Tried the '90 recently, spoke of how amazing a producer of Californian Cabernet it is, but just needed a little more time, this '85 is well & truly on point, everything is in balance, there's fruit intensity yes, but the development/complexity/layers are really shining through, outstanding stuff.

Silky. Tannins fully integrated. Warm fruit with old woody notes. Very nice.

Beautifully developed and smelling of cedar, forest floor, and tasting of aromatic cedar wet stone and red berries.
