Cakebread Cellars 1986 Cabernet Sauvignon finally opened

I did a wine tasting on New Year’s Eve with some friends and we finally opened my 28 year-old bottle of wine. Unfortunately, the 28 year-old wine wasn’t as good as I  had remembered it when I first bought it. Here is some more info about this wine: http://www.wine-searcher.com/wine-1102-1986-cakebread-cellars-cabernet-sauvignon-napa-valley-usa

I bought this bottle of wine in 1998 at the the vineyard in Napa Valley. At that time, it tasted fantastic. I was not and still am not a sophisticated wine drinker. I was out in California with some friends for another friend’s wedding. I bought a bottle of this wine for a wedding present and thought to myself that I better buy myself a bottle too.
