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. This is a skillfully made complex Cabernet Sauvignon that will not linger long on retailers' shelves. - Robert Parker

Good medium red. Sexy, pure aromas of redcurrant, mocha, leather and flint. Fine-grained and sweet, with nicely integrated acidity giving shape to the flavors of dark fruits, truffle, pepper, lavender and sassafras... Good medium red. Sexy, pure aromas of redcurrant, mocha, leather and flint. Fine-grained and sweet, with nicely integrated acidity giving shape to the flavors of dark fruits, truffle, pepper, lavender and sassafras. Finishes with building tannins, excellent length and considerable finesse. This rather suave wine possesses a firm mountain spine.

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 hold for another 10 years.
