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

Sampled 9/5/09. A great wine that only needed about 20 minutes in the glass. Blackberry, black cherry, red currant, dried herbs, white pepper, vanilla Oak. Beautifully layered. 40 second finish. It won`t improve so drink sooner than later, although it could last at this level for up to another 5 years.

Sampled 2/7/09. This wine took only half an hour to open fully but it did not drop off even after several hours. A hint of eucalyptus, some tar, black currant, cassis and blackberries. A rich and ripe wine that is beautifully layered, smooth and has a nice 20 to 30 second finish. A gem.
