International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 81

Saturated dark ruby. Multidimensional, expressive aromas of cassis, plum, violet, licorice, mint, leather and flowers. Juicy, penetrating fruit given thrust and focus by superb acidity. Really uncanny three-dimensional texture and great flavor intensity. Richness currently kept under wraps by powerful structure. Finishes with firm-edged Medoc-like tannins. Perhaps the classiest bottling to date of this wine.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 111

The 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits an opaque blue/black/purple color, followed by sweet cassis aromas intermingled with scents of earth, spice, smoke, and grilled meats. This dense, powerful, muscular, concentrated wine provides an enormous mouthfeel. Wineries need more than luck to produce multi-dimensional wines with this concentration, ripeness, sweetness of fruit, and overall intensity and complexity.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube Issue: Web

Perfumed red currant, cherry, anise and a sort of melted-chocolate aroma. It's firm, tight and concentrated, yet elegant in its own way, with tannins that are in balance and a long, detailed finish that shows off a minerally quality.--1995 California Cabernet retrospective. 2,200 cases made.

When first opened, smelled faintly of menthol and tasted thin and on its way out. 24 hours later, it was completely rejuvenated with nice aroma, classy dark fruit and lively acidity. Definitely long in the tooth, but still drinkable for another 3-4 years.

Moderate flavor intensity and finish. Evolved and thinning out.

Drinking very well, plenty of time left. Not quite up to the '94,' but a very good wine.

I think I rated this better before. Is on the backside of its peak. Still a lot of grip to the tannins so it needs to breath. Mellowed out to reveal elegant cab fruit complemented by subtle complexities. Decent length to the finish. Has reached a later "classy" stage.
