An outstanding California Cabernet, this is tightly wound, with firm tannins and good spicy currant, plum and cherry flavors that slowly come shining through the tannic veil. This deeply concentrated wine has lots of pretty oak to show off, too.
The 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is an outstanding effort from St. Francis. It exhibits an opaque purple color, followed by a big, gaudy, ostentatious nose of cedar, Asian spices, jammy black fruits, prunes, and toasty new oak. This intense, ripe, full-bodied wine possesses explosive richness, lavish pain grille notes, low acidity, and a heady, lusty, super-long finish. Yes, the new oak is high, but so is the wine's extract and fruit concentration. This is a Cabernet Sauvignon to be drunk with the stereo at high volume. As massive and rich as it is now, it should become more civilized with 3-5 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: now-2015.
