My second foray into 10 yr. plus wines. The nose is subtle yet still fruity with leather and spice compliments. On the palate so smooth and complex. The blackberry, current, oak, tobacco, etc. flavors are completely integrated. Wonderful mouth feel. A wine to absolutely savor. Had this with a perfectly grilled Ribeye. So good. Best wines for me to date are this and a '96 Robert Mondavi PR. Aging works when done right.
Smooth & Supple
A nicely matured expression of a classic California cabernet. The tannins have rounded nicely. Pretty on the nose, almost floral. Nice mouthfeel. Black fruit still present, with soft oak and spice in layers. Quite complex. Time to drink this one. It won't get any better.
I'm sorry to report that the bottle we received of the Berringer 1990 was very poor quality.The cork was dry and the wine tasted as if it had turned.One sip was all I could tolerate
