...As it sat in the glass, it took on an almost Ducru-Beaucaillou or Leoville-Las Cases St.-Julien-like character, with notes of minerals, cedar wood, black currants, tobacco, and spice. Robert Parker

Beautiful bottle. Surprisingly fresh aromas of plum, sweet tobacco, currant, mint. Plush and layered in the mouth - chocolate, cherry, mint. Everything is integrated on the finish where the texture and power push through. Youthful and a big, balanced wine that still has years ahead and in a great drinking space now.

Yep. This one was good though. My goodness, each sip lasts 30 mins.

From the glory days. A very good bottle from a vintage that was flashy and opulent and not considered as cellar worthy as others. A little VA on the nose with some smoke and black cherry. Palate still fleshy with a modest tannic grip.

Drink it up. Good at the start but finish is lacking. Can see the age around the rim.

This 97 Cab is a tad past its prime drinking age with aromas of dried fruits, raisin and plum. Tannins are fading fast but still managed to drink well. #robertmondavi #cabernetsauvignon #napavalley

The window is still there. Incredible nose, finish and overall structure.

Not quite middle age any longer but still looks cool driving a Corvette. Yummy
