had this wine about a week ago at dinner at smith and wollenksy's on the vegass strip. personally, i love aged napa valley cabs like i love aged boredohs and a 1992 napa cab should be showing really really well now-especailly one with a well known lineage such as araujo. and i wasn't disappointed when i opened this bottle paired with a ribeye steak and smith's famous mac and cheese as a side. the wine held up to the rigors of the steak easily and shown wonderfully in contrast to the 95 beaucastel that was also opened. the wine was absolutely elegant as an older wine should be. the tannins had softened to impart a plush tasting experience and not a harsh one. the finish was velvety smooth. loved it and i'd do it again!
solid 4 starzz outta 5
where's my gift certificate, eh?
