The virtually perfect 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (330 cases) is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Opaque purple-colored with a profound bouquet of minerals flowers black fruits and spice this awesomely concentrated multi-layered wine represents the essence of Cabernet Sauvignon. Amazingly it is neither ponderous nor heavy handed with the oak acidity and tannin woven into the wine's formidable concentrated personality. The finish lasts for nearly a minute...This is a spectacular wine that must be tasted to be believed.

Ripe rich and full-bodied with a complex array of spicy currant black cherry earthy-leathery nuances and mineral flavors. Tightly wound it's in need of short-term cellaring...

Very ripe aromas of kirsch, licorice, violet, camphor and dusty herbs. Plush and sweet in the mouth; a large-scaled, superripe wine with a slightly roasted quality to its plum syrup, tar and dark chocolate flavors. This powerful, slightly aggressive wine finishes with broad, granular tannins that coat the tongue. Like the 1995, this is far less evolved than the 1994.
