The 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon is as close to a perfect wine as I could hope to taste. This opaque purple-colored wine exhibits a sensational purity of black currant fruit intermixed with a notion of raspberries violets and well-disguised sweet vanillin. Full-bodied with remarkable intensity exquisite symmetry and a mid-palate and finish to die for this is a compelling astonishingly seductive Cabernet Sauvignon that can be drunk now or cellared for 20-25 years. I may have done this wine a disservice by not giving it the big 3-digit score. As I have tried so hard to articulate in past reviews what makes these wines so stunning is the black currant/cassis fruit. Screaming Eagle may be the most extravagantly pure and rich expression of cassis one can find ... short of drinking cassis liqueur. There is an unbelievable purity to these wines as well as phenomenal concentration and richness yet in no sense are they heavy ponderous or out of balance.

Sweet and silky with beautifully integrated acidity. Dense thick and fairly backward with inviting flavors of roasted plum and tobacco. Very long on the palate. May eventually equal the superb '94.
