Being still new to this, I'm wanting to understand what an aged wine really tastes like. I saw a 1990 Woodward Canyon at the local shop, but can't find any tasting notes, reviews, anything on this. The Woodward website just says drink/hold. I've really enjoyed some younger WC both Cabs & Merlots, so I've got a point of reference. Is there a reference/resource for obscure, older wines out there? Anybody here have any insight?

Thanks

I had a bottle of the Dedication Series a couple of years ago. Toasty oak and cherry fruit were still abounding. Tasty.

Grapeskie I posted on the 92 a while ago. Looked in my notes and find nothing on the 91. 'Twere a good vintage so reccomend opening that sucker and letting Bucko drop by. He wont add to the tasting, but you'll make an old person happy.WW [Image: biggrin.gif]

Had that recently. Great stuff, with a conspicuous whiff of something deciduous: cedar, spruce, like that. Very fine-grained and earthy, with a lovely sweet-stone character and whole gobs of berries. Nice wine that's at it's peak.

It's probably worth what they're asking...unless they want $100.

Hate to be picky, but aren't cedar and spruce conifers?

Deciduous would be ---- oak.

SB - They're asking 80 bucks for it at Esquin. Do you know where they get these older ones from? And if they've been stored properly?

I would think SB's "deciduous" descript would indicate a hint of pine needles.
