The wine combines extraordinary power and richness with remarkable complexity and finesse. The saturated purple/black color is followed by aromas of sweet vanillin intermixed with riveting scents of black currants minerals exotic spices coffee and toast. There is nothing garish about this subtle yet powerful giant of a wine. A Napa Valley classic it is full-bodied and extremely rich yet retains its sense of balance and symmetry...

Musky, soil-inflected aromas of dark raspberry, strawberry, minerals, tobacco, underbrush, cedar and dried herbs. Wonderfully silky and concentrated, displaying outstanding spicy lift to the vibrant, sharply delineated flavors of berries, coffee, anise and tobacco. Like a hypothetical blend of St. Julien and Graves. This beauty has only gained in clarity through the years as it has absorbed its baby fat. The tannins are firm but suave, in perfect balance with the wine's acidity and fruit. Juicy and subtly long on the aftertaste.

A delightfully rich vibrant and complex wine that is aging very gracefully. The core flavors are well-focused and offer a mix of mature red currant plum and floral scents with a touch of anise and mineral on the finish... A delightfully rich vibrant and complex wine that is aging very gracefully. The core flavors are well-focused and offer a mix of mature red currant plum and floral scents with a touch of anise and mineral on the finish. Ripe tannins let the flavors glide through the finish where mocha adds a nice added dimension.--1995 California Cabernet retrospective. Drink now through 2015. -JL
