Dark without being rich or heavy. Great length and brightness. Spicebox surprise!

I don't want to write a Facebook story but I need to get something off my chest - today was supposed to be about running my first 10k which I did and did my best - but today became much more - I lost my mom Friday in a car wreck - yes it was tragic for she was 79 years young - but she was an incredible mom - strong caring and always a big part of my growing up and values I have - I will miss her - all that said I dedicated the 10k race I ran to my mom - and I celebrate this wine and the next wine to her and the wonderful legacy (our family) she help create - rest in peace mom and thanks for the support from @Ron R @Martin G Rivard @David A Lentine @Joe Lucca and @Carl Fischer - by the wine was a wonderful tribute and had all four elements working correctly together - smell, taste, finish and balance

Final wine of the night - 100% cab - 100% Napa - 100% Silver Oak - got lucky and just decided to open even though my vertical through 2013 is one less - first sip is amazing - all SMILES - age is wonderful thing in a cellar

From magnum - perfect cork. A great sign. Decanted for 4 hours at cellar temp. Served with a grilled grass fed wagyu tenderloin from First Light.

Wine was nice and medium body. Smooth tannins very well integrated. Some fruit was left and good complexity. Great balance and old school Napa.

1995. Past it’s prime but still delish.

Decanted 2.5+ hours. Dark ruby in color with a great floral and black fruit jam bouquet. Very light and delicate on the palate for a Cabernet especially when compared with the Alexander. Smooth finish with well integrated tannins.

Subtle tannins and medium body. Lengthy finish. Still has beautiful color. Raspberries and vanilla with a touch of cedar.

Still black cherry. Very well aged. Secondary notes of earthiness. Extremely drinkable for 21 years old.
