Another 4th Friday for the books. What a much needed time out of the house and to be with friends after this past week. En mag! A stellar open by @Mark Flesher . I haven’t had many Beringer PR, and I think this was my first bottle en mag. Mushroom and tar up front gave way to new leather and a red fruit/black fruit medley. Very Bordeaux-like at this age. I’m sure Mark will add to this with a better description!

Cassis, Leather, Smoke, Spice, Blackberry, Mint/Menthol and still some nice tannins shilowing... Very nice hold in the cellar 10 yrs+ bought at the winery and still has plenty of life... More classic Bordeaux like drinking at this stage!

Might have opened this 2-3 years too early. Opened it on the advice of a former distributor of this wine and the fact that it was poorly stored before I came across it. Drank over three days. Still a fantastic reminder of how great and complex a Napa Cab can be. This is also the last of my Krannert wines if that means anything to anyone. @Jacob Emberton, CSW
