1984 Clos Du Bois Cabernet
12/10/08-Tim and Jane Curtis hosted the Wednesday Wino Band practice and provided a brown bag 1984 Clos Du Bois cabernet that had suffered years of abuse and neglect. The wine was not unpleasant; however, it had little resemblance to its youth and tasted more like sherry wine. This wine demonstrates the value in proper cellaring, inasmuch as we have sampled numerous 1984 cabernets that were cellared at 58 degrees, and they had stood the test of time and provided enjoyable drinking (Acacia, Forman, Laurel Glen, Caymus, etc.).
