Bright ruby-red. Wild, complex, slightly medicinal aromas of redcurrant, meat, leather and mint. Dense, concentrated and chewy, with its muscular aspect leavened by deep sweetness. Offers lovely vinosity. Finishes with substantial but ripe tannins and very good length.

Wine Advocate | 91

The 1987 Napa Cabernet reveals an opaque dark purple color, and a strong yet unevolved bouquet of cassis, minerals, and toasty oak. Rich, but very tannic and full, this wine should be at its best between 1998-2010.

Wine Spectator | 93

Attractive for its deep, rich fruit and spicy aromas, this is very young, intense and complex, with tiers of currant, plum and black cherry flavors and toasty oak notes. Stylish, very complete and firmly tannic on the finish, but it should reward cellaring until 1997 to 2001. 2,300 cases made.

Drink Dates: 1997-2001
