There's lots to admire in this Cab, with its core of currant, anise, cedar, sage and black olive flavors, and tannins that are firm but supple. Rich and concentrated, it's marked by more substance, depth and tannin than is the SLV bottling, if not as concentrated as the Cask 23. (JL)
The 1994s were much more impressive when tasted last year. At present, they reveal similar degrees of tart acidity, although this component is not quite as pronounced. Surprisingly, the PH levels must be in the 3.4 range, which is very low by the standards of the world's greatest Merlots and Cabernets. The 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon Fay Vineyard offers up a sweet, tobacco, coffee, spicy, herbal nose, followed by elegant, fruitcake, medium-bodied redcurrant flavors with a subtle hint of black fruits. The wine is round, with tangy acidity, but not the abrasive levels of tartness found in some of the other reds. The finish reveals good structure, purity, and tannin. (RP)
