Kenwood Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Valley Jack London Vineyard 1985
this is a magnum and is in its original wood box
If you have 90 minutes to two hours to just sit and sip, this is a truly remarkable wine. It opens up like no American wine we have ever had. "Memorable" understates the impact this wine had on us: it defined greatness in a Cabernet. Since we drank this bottle we have sought, all over the world, a comparable bottle. We have had many greats, but this bottle from this vintage remains the reference standard for perfection. When I die, I want a bottle of this on my bedside table (assuming I do not die in a restaurant drinking wine!) so it will be the last thing on my lips.
