Belvedere York Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon - 1984
December 01, 2009
Bottled for Stanford University I was unsure if this wine would stand the test of time. Fearing we had missed the deadline, my Dad and I were both pleasantly surprised by the fruit and structure that still remained. When first opened it gave off lovely Madeira-esque aromas that gave way to more subtle dark fruit notes. One the palate, delicate flavors or blackberry and plum that moved towards a lasting finished. Luckily there's one more bottle left!
