William Hill Cabernet, Gold Label 1983 offered an abundance of ripe, rich cherry flavor which refused to quit. Some obvious tannin will help it age during the next five to 10 years. Frankly, I enjoy it now.
Two older Cabernets, Freemark Abbey 1980 and Spring Mountain 1980 are fine for today's consumption.
Freemark is a big-structured, nicely developing wine of high intensity and a blend of cherry and chocolate flavors that indeed will age for another decade. Spring Mountain may not be as big but offers a measure of lean elegance with in-depth flavors. Not the best of Spring Mountain's Cabernets, nor its most expensive, it is well made and definitely a good value at $14.
