Solid, muddled fruit wrapped in American oak. No formal notes but seems to be cruising past its prime drinking window (for me)

Has the gamey nose of goat emmentaler cheese soaked in cherries. Young and ageable. Purchase to cellar if you enjoy the name. Classically oaked California Cab.

Toasty classically California Cab. Youthful in its 22 years.

Birth year wines are a tricky thing. We all want them to show well because we are opening them for an occasion. ‘81 North Coast is not a vaunted vintage but this is the the 3rd year in a row I’ve shared a birthday bottle with one of my all time favorite females....and each and every time the ‘81s deliver. Fully mature and delicious. The fruit is still going strong, ripe plum, tobacco, sandalwood and blackberry. Lots of length and silk on silk.

This is in a great place right now. So , so freaking good. I opened a 97 Napa silver oak the other day and was slightly disappointed. I think the AV is the Mike Tyson of the 2 right now. Drink em if you’ve got em!
