    Default TN 82 Cakebread Cabernet

    Many years ago my good friend brought this bottle from Napa and gave it
    to me, I suppose in the mid-80s. It has slept ever since, although
    traveled many thousands of miles by truck and container through our
    moves. The level and color were good (mid neck) but the cork crumbly
    and I wished for a better worm on the screw. With a fine salt marsh
    gigot we toasted our patron and distant friend Tom, (who now lives in
    Napa and works in the biz).

    Discreet nose of plums, mushrooms, leather. In the mouth a classic
    claret style, leather, slight mint and coconut over deep cherry fruit
    that grew as the wine opened in the decanter. Interestingly almost
    no dregs, clearly filtered.

    A fine old gentleman, perhaps a few years past middle age, but with
    great class, and no dotard. All the more enjoyable for its source
    and the memories it brought back of other days. Thanks again, Tom!

    Thanks for the notes Emery. I haven't opened a Cakebread Cab in years
    but I have a few bottles from the 90's that I've been holding on to.
    Maybe it's time to open them.
