1993 Shafer - Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select
Not much going on upon opening. Decanted for two hours. Color was still dark with very little variation on the rim. Legs were moving fast. Nose was faint with green pepper and spice. Tastes of black cassis, pepper and blackberry. No complexity in the finish, all gone at mid pallet. Enjoyed it but hoped for more.

1982 Pavie
Upon opening, the nose produced smells such as barnyard, green pepper and red fruit. As the wine was sat for a few hours the nose develope more of a "older wine" smell;more of a traditional bordeaux nose. On the palet it was a bit closed and I would say past it's prime but still had good red berry notes and a medium finish. color was still a strong purple with some lightness around the edge.

2001 William Cole - Cabernet Sauvignon Cuvee Claire
Classic CA cab. Purple in color, long legs with strong black fruit on the nose with a hint of chocolate. Great up front flavor, soft in the mouth but finished quickly after a hint of carmel/vanilla. Great tasting wine but not overly complex.
