1984 Silver Oak - Bonny's Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (82 pts) #winereview Sadly this wine is past its prime. Thick garnet rim with a tawny edge and noticeable fine sediment. Medium- intensity nose most of the fruit has disappeared. Developmental notes of earth, wet leaves, tobacco, and mushroom. Herbal notes of tomato leaf, pine, and dill. Medium acidity, medium- fine grained tannins, medium- body, and medium- alcohol (oh the days of 12% abv Napa Cabs). The palate still shows a glimpse of life. Black currants, black olive, dill, tomato leaf, ripe tomatoes, black tea, and white pepper on the finish. Overall the palate is on the savory side with a dusty finish but it is short and fleeting. Educational at best. #wineterroir #winelover
