The vibrant, deep, elegant wine from this long, cool vintage with harvest at the end of October is one of my favourites. It’s rich and plush yet very vibrant, with layers of cherries, plums, cassis, cigars, mint and more. There’s plenty of structure and an elegant silkiness to the tannins, and it’s going to live a long, long life. (EM)
The 1995 growing season was a long and cool year, with the old vines for this cuvée picked on October 31st and 442 cases produced. The wine is stellar and at age twenty-one, just now getting ready for primetime drinking. The complex and very pure nose soars from the glass in a blaze of black cherries, cassis, menthol, dried eucalyptus, tobacco leaf, cigar smoke and cedary wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and really shows some old vine sappiness at the core, with suave, melting tannins, impeccable focus and grip, blossoming complexity and a very, very long and very refined finish. Another absolutely gorgeous bottle of cabernet! (Drink between 2016-2050) 95+
The 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Old Vine Reserve was bottled unfiltered, but was given a slight egg white fining. It is a backward, concentrated example in need of a decade of cellaring. Medium to full-bodied, with a deep ruby/purple color, and plenty of ripe cassis in the nose, it displays an unevolved, austere, formidably dense and muscular personality. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2025. (RP)
