A huge nose of roasted meats, tobacco, ripened dark fruit and saddle leather.... the finish is smooth and balanced! Yep still full bodied and structured for it’s age.

For a 30 year old Napa Cab it holds up quite well. This Mondavi Reserve was a special Eine!

Ready and needs 15 minute decant. It's a flavor of a by gone era!

Initially a bit muted but with food and about 30+ min in the decanter this woke up.
Hit a really sweet spot after about an hour and then slowly rolled down the slope.

Definitely a little tired but not spent! All nuance on the nose with just a whisper of dark fruits on the mid palate.

Opened up pretty much right away not used to drinking old Napa wine. Big, luscious, fruit and some herb spice ...
