Whoh There Nelly...Stop the Carriage!! another absolute winner from the Garveys with the multi-talented winemaker Ken Deis. Have loved most every bottling since the 78.They really mean it when they put reserve on a bottle. This is absolutley stunning. Purple...Great aromatics, felt like some alchemist took my tongue and put a trance on it. By the time I regained control I was completely inundated in Cab Heaven. Killer juice and has to be in the top 5 of this outstanding vintage. WW

After drinking alla' them lightweights with the bird and stuff I wanted something that would grab some tongue, kicked the taste-bud afterburners and said "Pay Attention". Not a lot to add to the above so I'll sign off! WW
