Very good deep ruby color. Superripe aromas of roasted plum, tar, malt and iron, plus a hint of raisin. Silky and quite rich for the year, but with good cut; has a concentration that suggests stressed vines. Lingering finish features fine-grained tannins. These wines manage to be both rich and unusually delicate for Napa cabernet.

Seavey has produced some exceptional Cabernet Sauvignons, and I predict the 1995 (950 cases) will be an unexpected winner in many blind tastings. It is performing even better this year than it did last, hence my elevated score. The color is an opaque purple. The wine displays a fantastic nose of classic black currants intermixed with cigar box and cedar scents. In the mouth, it is full-bodied and backward, but persuasively rich, layered, and marvelously well-balanced. There is a deep, sweet mid-palate and explosive ripeness and richness in the long, heady finish. (13.9% alcohol) A sleeper pick in this outstanding vintage, it should evolve effortlessly for 20-30 years.

Very subdued. I don't think its dead but came across somewhat flat/tired. Not sure where this is going.
