The 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a dark ruby/purple color a tight but burgeoning nose of black fruits white flowers and earth. On the palate it reveals a sweet spicy blackcurrant-flavored attack medium to full body and strong tannin in the finish. The middle needs to fill out a bit more. Give this wine 2-4 years of cellaring and drink it over the next 2 decades. As I have said before the Cabernet Sauvignons produced at Anderson's Conn Valley Vineyard represent a synthesis in style between the extravagant ripeness so frequently achieved in top California vintages and the more elegant restrained style produced in Bordeaux. Recent vintages are all consistently good although the 1994 Cabernet may not be the hugely successful wine that so many other estates produced in this benchmark vintage. I would have expected it to be much better than the 1993. Admittedly I saw the wine immediately after bottling (no fining or filtration take place at Conn Valley) but the wine tasted reticent although impressive and possibly meriting an outstanding score.
