Surprised not being a reserve wine, this stood up that long, but that's what proper cellaring will do! Interesting time as it's just entering its second phase where the fruit begins to fade to earthy, leathery character. The gamey, dirty nature is setting in, but I was shocked at how strong and ripe the fruit remains on the nose and palate! Nose of dried, stewed prunes with some bright red berries remaining and dried flower petals. Deep core of cassis and dark berries and black currant over relaxed tannins and dried floral bouquet.

Another bottle for our older wines tasting and it's still awesome! I can't believe a non-reserve wine like this has stood up so well. It's right between the first and second phase of its life and it's just simply impressive, delicious and complex. - Tasted at Schreiner's Winers: The Aging Process- Library/Older Wines 5/21/10

Dark, ripe and intense, with a rich core of cedar, currant, anise and spice flavors, finishing with a firm tannic edge. Impressive for its detailed, integrated flavors and fine balance...

Very good full medium ruby. Currant, black cherry, roast coffee, cedar, leather, tobacco, truffle and black olive on the flamboyant nose. Sappy, youthfully tight flavors of currant and tobacco leaf, with a faint gamey nuance. Very ripe and rich but a... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

Still quite young and vibrant, with a firm tannic edge, its earthy currant, sage, spice and cedar flavors unfold gently on the palate.--1987 California Cabernet horizontal. -JL Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1987 Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Varietal composition: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon 12% Cabernet Franc 2% Petit Verdot Flavor descriptors: Deep, dark color signals the wine’s depth of flavor and opulent texture. Aromas of black fruits and hints of cedar, black licorice and spicy nutmeg and clove lead to dense flavors of blackberry and black plum enhanced by elegantly powerful tannins. Polished yet powerful. Wine analysis: Total acid: .66% Final pH: 3.7 Residual sugar: 1.0% (dry) Alcohol: 15% by volume Grape Sourcing: 81% Oakville AVA, including 53% To Kalon Vineyard; 19% Stags Leap District
