|Grape||Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Bordeaux Blend|
What a treat! This Gloria really shows the sheer quality and finesse of the 1985 vintage. This OWC came from a very well conditioned cellar. BOW 8-8+.
The 1985 displays fine depth and richness. Deep in color, with a weedy, herbaceous, cedary, black currant bouquet, it offers up a rich mouthful of succulent claret.

Lots of toasty oak notes add complexity to the spice and cassis flavors, but it's balanced and even delicate despite its richness.
