Tried this last night w/ leftovers:
1. Ravenswood CabernetSauvignon SonomaCnty (13.0%; 42% SonomaVlly, 49% DryCreek, 9% Knight'sVlly) 1990: Very dark color w/ little bricking; slight herbal rather ripe blackcurranty/Cab lovely cedary/pencilly complex slight licorice nose; soft very smooth/polished lightly herbal/tea ripe/lush/black curranty/Cab/black cherry/spicy rather cedary/pencilly complex flavor; med. smooth/polished/elegant spicy/blackcurranty/Cab slight herbal lovely/complex cedary/pencilly finish w/ little tannins; a lovely/smooth/polished/elegant Cab that has come together beautifully; still very much alive and no signs of going over the hill, but fully ready to drink, a real surprise.

1. Ravenswood doesn't get a whole lot of recognition for their Cabs, but they actually make some of the best around. This is one that came together amazingly well.
