A consistent star of the vintage, this fully mature wine exhibits no sign of losing its fruit. The color is saturated dark plum/garnet with slight amber at the edge. The bouquet has always been ostentatious, with pungent aromas of cassis, pepper, herbs, licorice, cedar, and Asian spices. Full-bodied and superbly balanced, with that layered, expansive richness found in top, highly extracted wines, the acidity is low but sound, and the tannin has nearly melted away. This stunning, opulent, complex California Cabernet Sauvignon should continue to drink well for another decade or more.
Garnet color, with ripe, spicy, high-toned cherry, plum and rose petal scents. It exhibits mature, sweet currant and plum flavors that pick up a dusty anise and cedar flavor. The sweetness of the fruit is impressive, as is the balance. Finishes with drying tannins, a characteristic of this vintage at this age.--California Cabernet '74/'84/'94 retrospective. (Web-2004)
