Notably dark. Well balanced and integrated nose already. Layers of flavour ? some tealeaf again ? with real refreshment and delicacy. Bravo! Transparent and really lifted and elegant. Serious with that brine quality again. By no means obvious but rewarding. Appetising dry (as opposed to sweet) finish. (LM)

One of California's finest Sauvignons is consistently produced by Spottswoode Winery. With respect to the 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon, a beautifully scented nose of cassis, lead pencil, high quality new oak, and spice is followed by a wine with striking richness and balance. This dark ruby/purple-colored Cabernet possesses fabulous concentration, yet it never comes across as heavy or out of sync. A gloriously made, elegant yet powerfully flavored wine, it is accessible, yet capable of lasting for another 12-20 years. This sensational Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits the more complex, elegant side of California winemaking. Bravo!

A powerful vintage produced a powerful wine, full-bodied and firm with complex chocolate, plum, spice and licorice flavors. It's a bit tough now, and should show better with time.--Spottswoode vertical. 4,860 cases made.
