A bit mixed in my opinion about this wine. On one hand, it has a great saddle leather/barnyard funk with ripe cherry and plum fruits. On the other hand, it's a little heavy handed with the oak and I'm getting a bit of brambly/green pepper/vegetal aroma which really turns me off. I think this wine depends heavily on the food pairing. Maybe savory or gamey meat.

Best Cabernet under $20? Debatable of course but a strong candidate if you ask me.

Not as captivating texturally compared to past bottles, but still in a good place. A beautiful nose the at reminds me of Bordeaux, old library smell, leather, and forest floor. The tannin is completely resolved. Drink up!

A little green for my taste but a cool wine nonetheless. Needs food.

Wow! Apparently there's one more bottle of this somewhere in West Seattle. Musky, old and still drinking. But won't last long. Please drink now!

Done in a Bordeaux style with Merlot and Cab Sauv. Definite showing it's age with some barnyard funk and amber color.

Balanced Cab-Merlot blend with delicious sweet, earthy cranberry, dirt, mushroom, but oh so smooth. A little more austere than 1999.

Not much of this out there but I dare anyone to find a better Cabernet based wine this old for under $30, THIS costs about $15 #friuli #italiancabernatsauvignon #italianbordeaux?

Such balance and enveloping flavors. Yep, not huge on the fruit, but really opens up to reveal aromas and flavors that cool climate natural wine making can produce. Really reveals the subtle smokiness in locally made brisket.
