Over the years, my notes on the 1978 B.V. Private Reserve have been wildly inconsistent. In this tasting (February, 1995), the wine performed up to its highest standards, displaying fully mature aromas of roasted herbs, red and blackcurrants and cherries intertwined with caramel and spice notes. Dense, rich, and full-bodied, with a velvety texture and gobs of spicy oak, this high alcohol, lusty-styled Cabernet Sauvignon offers a compelling glass of delicious wine. (RP)
A massive treat unearthed from the cellars of the newly located Union Square Cafe. Light and delicate and essence of old Napa. Such transparency and grace! Pretty impressive lifespan. (JR) 18/20 points
This has always been overrated, but it's thick and ripe, with lots of cedar, mushroom, ginger and cherry character. A bit simple and ponderous but delicious.--Georges de Latour Private Reserve vertical. (JS)
