With more herbs, cedar and tea than its '97 sibling, this one is embracing age. Ripe aromatics and big, balanced fruit flavors. Deep color in the center of the glass with brick at the edge, silky texture and maturing fruit, showing elements of black currant and dark spice with a long finish.

Wine SpectatorStarts out smooth, showing rich, earthy currant, hazelnut and nutmeg scents, with a hint of mocha and dense, chewy tannins. Still very youthful, firm and extracted. The first two bottles were corked.--1996 California Cabernet retrospective. Drink now through 2012.
