This is a big and complex wine packed with bright blueberry and raspberry fruit, sandalwood and molasses. Closely emulating the nose, the palate is extremely well balanced and dense with pleasing, chewy tannins, an unmistakably rich fruit core and a finish that goes on and on.
Impressively saturated ruby color. Knockout floral nose combines blackcurrant, spices and shoe polish. Lush and supple in the mouth, with extraordinarily pure fruit character, yet more tightly wrapped than the '96 due to stronger acidity. Really juicy and penetrating, though, and very long on the finish.
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.
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.
