Bright red-ruby color. Black cherry, chocolate, minerals and tarry, smoky oak on the nose. Supple, oaky and pliant, with ripe, moderately deep berry flavors complicated by notes of leather and tobacco. The tannins are slightly dry but the wine is already quite approachable.

The 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley reveals a provocative nose of tobacco, black cherries, cloves, fruitcake, and spice. Some plum and raspberry fruit also emerges on the palate. This is a hedonistic, sexy, seductive, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with low acidity, and loads of toasty oak. It will be a huge crowd pleaser when released next year. It should show well for at least 12-15 years.

Combines ripe, rich, complex fruit with a sense of finesse and harmony. The core of anise, currant, sage and cedar unfolds to reveal more depth and complexity. Finishes with a long, satisfying aftertaste. Drink now through 2006. 39,000 cases made.

Drank with the McDougall's on Christmas Eve. The wine has definately lost a lot, slightly brown on the edge. Weight as light and flavors were dim. Somewhat disappointing from a magnum sized bottle but is was 18 years old. Should have had it 10 years ago.

The eucalyptus is gone but a fine albeit somewhat aging typical califonia cab.
