1986 Joseph Phelps Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon: A bit of brown sugar to the nose

jan. 23, 2010: we got back from indy and bloomington and arrived at my parents' house to two twirling dogs (one big, the other little) who almost tripped us and pushed us backwards onto my car. so ashby and shelby were glad to have us home, and almost instantaneously, my dad rewarded us with glasses of this napa valley eisele vineyard from st. helena, california. i don't know how to describe this wine, other than to say that, inexplicably, the nose made me think of brown sugar. the texture was soft, with minor tannins. 13.4 percent alcohol.
