Darker fruit aromas on the nose than the preceding vintages, showing black- and redcurrant, spices, mint, coffee and violet. Subtly complex and glossy in texture, conveying a savory character and classic dryness to its flavors of plum, black cherry and dried flowers. Bright, well-integrated acidity gives the wine a juicy quality. The long finish features substantial broad, dusty tannins and a repeating note of dried flowers. A lovely mature California Cabernet in a low-alcohol style: I might have identified this blind as a Bordeaux. I recall that I did not like this wine in the early going as I thought its acidity was out of whack, but today it's a beauty.

Starts out with a meaty earthy slightly cheesy quality along with hints of currant in the aroma then unveils complex fruit flavors with hints of cherry plum and currant and a dash of cedar and finishes with a tarry edge... Starts out with a meaty earthy slightly cheesy quality along with hints of currant in the aroma then unveils complex fruit flavors with hints of cherry plum and currant and a dash of cedar and finishes with a tarry edge. Well balanced quite firm and tannic. In need of further cellaring.--1987 California Cabernet horizontal. 1567 cases made.
