Wanted to raise a glass to Kobe. 1978 was his birth year and the final year that had all the premier fruit! The following year all that amazing juice went to the first bottling of Opus One. This was very emotionally impactful for us. Amazing wine!

Deeply ruby color with little bricking wouldn't revel it's advanced age and neither would the tart fruit and lush body. Pruney and woody intensity and mince pie savory balancing.

Napa Cabernet Sauvignon from the '70s are some of the best in the world. This methuselah is confirmation.
