My senior moments must be coming on faster than I realized as I was sure I'd posted on this gem before but I went back a year and couldn't find hide nor. My last bottle from the original box and this has been delightful to drink since day one. 50% cab and 50% merlot Tom quit making this wine as he grafted over the merlot vines to Pinot after the 97 vintage. Highly floral with lots of red fruits, spices, vanilla bean, and lavender on the nose and all comes over on the palate. Silky entry medium center and a lovely 4 lapper finish. Stylish bottling that is always a winner.'Bye ole' friend! 90/90 28 on futures.14.5% alc. WW
