Wine Spectator | Rating: 93A dramatic effort. This Cabernet is bold, ripe, rich and concentrated, gushing with minty currant, black cherry, plum and wild berry flavors. It's highly extracted, delivers a long, rich aftertaste.Author: James Laube
Wine Advocate | Rating: 78I have been critical of the red wines from Silverado, which often taste frightfully austere with sharp levels of acidity. I was troubled by the extremely lean, painful, sharp personality of the 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon Limited Reserve. An austere wine, with high acidity, a disappointing medium ruby color, and minty, underripe red currant flavors, it has an astringent personality. To me, it is an inexplicable Cabernet Sauvignon from a vintage that has probably produced more profound Cabernets than any to date.Author: Robert Parker
Self | Rating: 88Such a promising nose. Starts with wonderful cherry, kirsch, spices, cedar. Dies as it moves to the back of the mouth. No mid-palate or body. Disappointing. Leaves you wondering where it all went.Drink Dates: 2008-2010Author: StuTarheel
