Dark tawny, opaque. A little reddish amber in the rims. Great nose right out of the gate. Notes of plum, black cherry, currants, cedar floors and a little sweet cranberry. Silky smooth in the mouth. Tannins integrated but there is still great structure and mouth feel which builds with air. In a great window right now but bottles like this will go for at least 10 more years.

Wow! So young and fresh. Incredible. Never would have guessed '91. More like a 12 yr fully integrated beauty!

Classic lines. Elegance and muscularity meet, team up, kick ass. Graphite, bold cherry tobacco and sage.

Really nice aged Mondavi cab. Wonderful scents on the nose. Old musty plums and soil. Deep ruby color with bricking on the edges. After an hour in the decanter the finish turned from watery to a full mouth feel. Tannins perfectly integrated with the still present fruit. Great with a steak at Benny's in Chicago.

A little bretty, secondary driven and holding on to some firm tannins like many '91s.

California cabs back then were so different. Very much a Bordeaux style wine. Dusty, earthy but with nice fruit.

Classic Bordeaux style older Napa Cab. Very enjoyable and still had some fruit left in it.
