    Default TN: Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1978

    The Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1978 has been properly
    stored by me since shortly after release, and there were no cork or
    other issues.

    This wine is still fairly deep colored and is holding very well. There
    are still some tannins that are somewhat more dry than for many older
    Napa Valley CSs, for example.There is fairly intense dark fruit,
    mainly cassis. There also is considerable herbal character that adds
    to the complexity. Considering all of this, the wine would be very
    good. However there also is a fairly intense bell pepper character
    that ruins the wine for me, as I do not like more than a very small
    amount of bell pepper taste and smell in a wine, although I can enjoy
    bell peppers served as food. Others may like this wine much better
    than I do if they do not mind much more than a hint of bell pepper.

    Bell pepper seemed to rule the day in the 78's and ruined them for me.
    Just drank up the last of the 78's last year.
