decanted 4 hrs before tasting. dark garnet color; coffee, cocoa, black cherry, menthol on nose. Licorice, dark fruits on palate. Med acid; med-high tannin; long finish. A bit of heat from alcohol.

This is drinking so well right now. Superb balance. Elegant mouthfeel. Hasn't lost a step in 16 years!
Pride Mountain - Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Popped and poured, drank over next hour. Clear, garnet, dark fruit on nose and palate. Strong mid-palate, long finish. Remarkable balance. Seems more youthful than one would think.
