1985 Grgich Hills Cabernet Sauvignon

Deep garnet color with no signs of oxidation. The nose presented an expressive bouquet of blackberry and cedar. Not much was expected on the palate, this made the discovery of how good the bottle was a very nice surprise. Gorgeous, seamless, dark fruits, blackberries, earth and slight floral flavors with a silky mouthfeel and very long finish.

1982 Beringer Vineyards Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Deep garnet core and russet rim. Intense kirsch liqueur nose, some foresty notes, very pronounced. Rich, dark fruit flavors, medium+ body. Lots of fruit gracing the frame, light cedar tones. Very youthful, still very primary fruit flavors of boysenberry pie, black ripe sweetness and a touch of graphite. Very well put together with life and development ahead of it.
