1984. Wow. This was a surprise wine, showing well. Never would have guessed Napa. Smooth, well balanced

Signed bottle from GBH and noticed seepage and slight bulge in cork so thought it a goner. But what a glorious classic dusty acidic old timey Cali Cab! Perhaps past its 'prime' in terms of primary fruit, deep garnet color but with very subdued nose, a classic palate with tobacco, leather and all that classic Cab notes and long finish. Still lively and an elegant wine. Wow! Next day nose opened up with Sherry and mushrooms notes and more silkiness on palate.

1984 vintage. Tasted blind. Cherry and tobacco followed by hints of oak. And it just smells *old*. Mild sharp drying tannin and backed by strong acidity.

Really good example of aged ca cab. In decline with graceful flavors of cedar and tobacco with still a good amount of ripe fruit.
