Winemaker Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

V 94
Vinous / Antonio Galloni

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.

RP 94
The Wine Advocate

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.
Range: 92-94

WS 92
Wine Spectator

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.
