One of the best bottles I have ever had of the 1985. Dark, dense, rich and incredibly young for its age. Magnificent!

Amazing how well put together these wines are. Proof that Napa can be built to last. Still life left after 30 years...

Needed 2 hours in a decanter. Cassis, cedar, leather. A great CA cab

Got better and better as it opened up. Blackberry, roses, herbs. Just delicious. Proof Napa Cab can age like Bordeaux.

Bottle of the Night: Cigar, brambly dark fruit, full midpalate, long finish. THIS is what Napa Cabernet with age can do.

Structured and tannic with a green, herbal note, this is drinking well, but not quite as nice as the previous 2 wines.

One of best aged 1985 Cali cabs I have had in a long time. Smooth aged black cherry fruit.
