    Tasted by Zed57 on 2/28/2012: A well aged California cab. A distinctive nose that is intriguing. Bold herbaceous flavours that are classic silver oak with cedar and dill. May not be everyone's taste but I loved it. It has peaked. Don't wait. Wish I had more but alas this is the last.

    Good deep red-ruby. Ripe aromas of cherry, dark chocolate, tar and mint. Less dense than the '97 but shows the baby fat of the vintage. But doesn't have quite as much flavor development as the '97. Finishes with good length and slightly green tannins.
