This fine vintage is a prototypical Mayacamas Cabernet, briary in the nose with hints of cherry and raspberry that carry over into the mouth. Enjoyable now, particularly with an hour or more of breathing before service, it will grow in depth and complexity for many years, while still maintaining great richness of fruit.
Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot
"A totally seamless, impeccable wine, the 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon is all about grace. Sweet red cherries, anise, dried flowers, mint, spices and crushed rocks abound in a beautifully expressive Cabernet Sauvignon built on pure silk. The 1995 can be enjoyed today, but it is texturally so well balanced it will drink well for many, many years. There is a slight element of brett in the 1995 that may bother some tasters more than others."
