Tasting Notes

92 points Wine Spectator: "Rich and tannic with a ripe core of plum, black cherry, mint and anise flavors that are tightly wound. Finishes with a good dose of tannin but the fruit hangs in." (07/88) K&L's notes - The 70's and 80-'s were very kind to this winery. The production of classy, yet concentrated cabernets was the model of consistency. These wines are undervalued today, as the winery has for some reason fallen under the radar of the collector. James Laube reviews this Vintage Selection in his book California's Great Cabernets: "A phenomenal 1984, firm,lean,rich and intense, with layers of concentratedplum,spice,currant and black cherry flavors offset by toasty oak. Not as fleshy as most 84's, this is an ager. The finish is long and vibrant.An intense wine that needs patience. Drink 1996-2006."
