Epic bottle of classic Cabernet made with great care very quiet at first, but opened and opened over the course of two hours in the decanter. Fleshy black fruit, soft silky texture, very fine. #pauldraper #springmountain

Wow. Crisp black fruit. Still fresh and vibrant w/ lots of earth/forest/mushroom accents peeking through. Very good, drinking great now, but still may continue to develop

When the cork drops and you *have* to try it... Crazy good. Sweet fruit, tobacco, spice box goodness.

High shoulder fill. Fig and plum notes plus leather and spice. Black cherry overtones on the pallate, which is well integrated and silky smooth. Long finish. A beautiful wine; wouldn't have guessed it was 34 years old.
