I’m a sucker for these older SLWC SLVs...they hold up so well and harken back to a different style of Napa wines. Sipped on and let breathe over an hour and a half. Every sip was better than the last, no sign of it fading. 98 was panned but rewarded those who were patient. Drink ‘em if you have ‘em!

Deep ruby coloration. On the nose, currant, cocoa and plum. On the palate, lush mouthfeel, blueberry, dark berry, currant, oak and tobacco in the finish. Long and complex finish. Tannins are still medium-strong. Can easily continue to age and soften several more years.

Mag. Plush dark fruit, cassis, earth, some nicely integrated new oak flavors of caramel and vanilla. Soft and silky, plenty of ripeness to please lovers of modern-styled cabs but not at all over the top or unbalanced.
