Very rich palate feel dark fruit and smooth tannins, secondary flavors becoming more prominent

Medium bodied. Slightly fruity, very peppery. Not a classic Cabernet, nice

This ‘97 Reserve is fabulous - in the glass for an hour and it delivers so many flavors - mocha, deep plum, leather, soft tobacco, a tiny pinch of pepper just to make it perfect, and so much more; tannins that are velvety smooth and support the structure of the wine at this age. If you are sitting on this one, enjoy it now. Spend the money on the aged, prime steak, grill it to perfection, and have a great summer dinner. Arguably the best vintage in the last three decades for California Cab, and this one is firing on all cylinders.

I have fond memories of early to mid 90’s Whitehall Lane Morisoli vineyard wines. I drank a lot of them in my early years as an attorney and I couldn’t get enough. This ‘95 is a blend of Morsoli and Leonardini and is waning. Nice reminder but couldn’t go nose to nose with the Arnot Roberts G3 on this night.

Drank at Bishops Post. Dan gave us a deal for $60. Velvety smooth - full bodied - long finish. Wonderful cab.
