The 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate which has been closed since bottling has just begun to open and display its enormous potential. The saturated black/purple color is followed by aromas of gorgeously pure blackberry and cassis scents. Toasty oak notes are barely discernable given the wine's bombastic display of black fruits huge chewy glycerin level and sensational finish. It will be exciting to follow the evolution of the 1994 and 1995.

This is a smooth rich dark and polished Montelena--in short a grand wine--with remarkable depth richness and concentration. The purity of currant mineral black cherry and anise is deliciously focused and the tannins are ripe and supple making this a very approachable wine even at this stage.--California Cabernet '74/'84/'94 retrospective. Drink now through 2012. 9000 cases made. -JL
