Thot fer surely I'd posted on this lovely bottle but as stated MEENY times the memories the 2nd thing to go. One of my perennial favorite cabs this is a worthy successor to the marvelous 94 which BigTrfWines and me-self have finally devoured.Brite ruby. Nose os flowers, red fruits, spice and some earth with a dash of vanilla. All come over on the palate along with a sense of almost sweet cinnamon buns. Soft entry, solid center and a 4+ lapper finish. Still some supple tannins that will carry this forward for another 1-3. Kick-patootie juice. 91/95 19 by the box.13% alc. WW

Opened one for lunch today at a new BYOB joint that serves KILLER food. The nose was so intense that 2 ladies who were drinking tea at a table across from me looked up and said"What is that you're drinking". Whenced I replied a 97 Cabernet I was greeted with probably the blankest stare I've ever encountered. I knew there was no way out so I got up and went to the john. Great juice but didn't do any anylizing, just a whole lot of enjoying. WW
