The 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon, which I have drunk with great pleasure despite its backwardness, possesses a full-bodied, multi-layered personality, with plenty of tannin, but sufficient earthy, black currant/plum-like fruit to balance out the wine's structure. With an opaque purple color, a high tannin level, and gorgeous layers of fruit and intensity, it will be at its peak after 4-6 years of cellaring, and will last for 20-25 years. I don't think I need to reinforce the fact that these offerings are extremely difficult to find, but isn't that the way it always is with such extraordinary wines?

Impressive for its richness, depth and concentration, this is a tightly wound, well-focused Cabernet that exhibits a wonderful pure core of currant, black cherry and blackberry fruit that's remarkably youthful. For all its depth and complexity, it ends up being elegant and sophisticated.--California Cabernet '74/'84/'94 retrospective. 2,800 cases made.

Very durable cab. Still dark with moderate intensity and slightly sweet fruit. Tannins still a bit hard. Expect this would last another 10 years but will not improve.

Closed in the glass initially, noticeable tannins. Opened up to express wonderfully concentrated crushed blackberries, licorice. Palate staining, but not cloying. Smooth, sweet tannins. Delicious!
