I am surprised at the nose of a wine this old. It seems “fresher” than I would have guessed—not oaky at all. Introduction to the palate is quite pleasant—fairly smooth with typical cabernet cassis flavors. Very tame tannin. However, as the wine moves past mid-palate a sharp tartness takes over. Sadly, what begins as a terrific, aged Cabernet Sauvignon slides down on the finish to a good wine, but not a special wine.

Opened a magnum of the 1997 Kenwood Jack London and decanted for an hour. This bottle was on its last legs. Fruit all but gone, tannins missing, lackluster. I was quite disappointed after such a great showing from a 750 ml bottle a few years earlier. Improved a little the second hour in, but not enough to warrant the $90 outlay.
