Bright ruby-red. Lively perfumed aromas of cassis raspberry and spicy oak. Pretty focused and sappy in the mouth with an impressively fresh raspberry flavor. Offers very good balance and structure though it seemed to grow a bit harder as it opened in the glass. Finishes very long with ripe fine tannins. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Medium garnet in color. The nose offers sweet plum prunes dried leaf and tobacco backed by mulling spice cigar box and dried floral notes. On the still youthful palate the flavors showcased mirror the bouquet along with cinnamon and licorice. This medium-bodied wine displays ample amounts of acidity and rustic tannins and a finish that is delicate yet firm with layers of dried fruit and spice. This reflects the quality of older California Cabernets especially from Napa. Drink now or ho

The 1987 Reserve is a worthy competitor to the terrific 1986. The 1987 s dark ruby/garnet color is followed by a super bouquet. There are huge aromas of chocolate spicy new oak herbs cassis and tobacco in this beautifully scented wine. In the mouth it is full-bodied voluptuous spicy and crammed with fruit glycerin and enough tannin to support 15-16 years of cellaring. Like the 1986 the tannins are soft and fortunately the acids are not shrill enough to prevent immediate drinkability
