December 199894 The spectacular 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Speciale is a worthy rival to the monumental 1994. It offers an opaque purple color and a knock-out nose of tobacco, jammy cassis, pain grille, and floral scents. This wine has superb extract and purity, full body, multiple layers of richness, and a ripe, seamless, palate-staining finish. Although approachable, it is not quite as accessible as the glorious 1994. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2020. The Reserve Special wines spend just under two years in oak casks, and are bottled unfined and unfiltered. This stunning offering is among the finest of its type. Production is modest (1,700 cases).
Web Only - 200592 Vibrant and lively, with rich, ripe, lush, savory currant, blackberry, mineral, anise and cedar notes that are all in proportion, giving this wine a tremendous sense of balance, finesse and harmony. It finishes with a long, persistent finish, with lots of detailed flavors and depth.--1995 California Cabernet retrospective. Drink now through 2014. 1,239 cases made.

December 199991 Bright, deep ruby-red. Musky, gamey aromas of black raspberry, tobacco, leather, tar and cedar, plus a suggestion of citrus skin; this reminded me of a topnotch traditional Rioja reserva. Fresh, intensely flavored and complex, with juicy flavors of red berries, spice, loam and tar. Dense but nicely delineated. Tannins are firm but harmonious. Finishes with a flavor of red berries. Very distinctive Sonoma cabernet.
