Amazing 97 Cabernet

Stunning wine. Sorry I only bought 2 bottles. Lots of fruit still left but has really matured. Very balanced and smooth.

97 Magic

my only regret is that all I purchased was 3 bottles...absolute masterpiece

Still holding strong ...

Upon receiving this wine, I was a little concerned about how much "life" it might have left in it. So, I had to share a bottle with some good friends for their anniversary. Needed to run through a strainer, as it had a fair amount of sediment, as to be expected. It tasted fantastic, and still has some good life left to it. I think it will continue to cellar well for at least 3 - 5 more years. Still has some vibrant fruit (black cherry) and some smooth caramel/vanilla undertones. Nice!

Fabulous 1997 Cabernet

I was thrilled when WineAccess offered this cabernet from my favorite vintage in Napa - 1997. This wine did not disappoint. Or to put it positively, it was a wonderful example of its vintage. Loved every drop and wish, as always, for more. Compares favorably to the Conn Valley of the same year - my favorite along with the 1997 Maya.

Tight with good fruit

Tight cab with excellent dark fruit. Will age well.

Drink it now

I was really excited for this one but it was a bit of a let down. Very little tannin remains. It's too smooth for my palate.
