Winemaker Notes

The 1994 appeared opaque in the glass with a blackish ruby core fading to a garnet rim. Tears showed slight staining and a medium viscosity. The nose offered indications of some development with layer upon layer of slightly stewed blackberry and dry raisins & figs covering hints of soy, tea, saddle leather and boot polish aromas. Suggestions of dry red soil, powdered spices and coffee & cocoa bordered the complex nose. The wine tasted dry, with restrained primary characteristics of blueberry and blackcurrants, Chartreuse liqueur and fresh peppercorns, and secondary characters of cedar and sweet cigar smoke. Tannins were tough and suggest time to resolve themselves, and it seems that the enormity of the structure will enable the wine to improve with a further decade or so of cellaring. Fairly high acidity gives the wine youthful vibrancy and helps lift the aromatics. The finish was complex long and firm. Cellar for further 5 + years to help soften tough tannins.

Critical Acclaim

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Look out for the behemoth 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain. This black/purple-colored wine adds a few more nuances (minerals, licorice, and floral scents) to the lavish display of creme de cassis. Full-bodied, with a blockbuster level of extract and density, this is an outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon for readers with patience, good genes for longevity, or the foresight to purchase it for their children.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Dark-hued, with wild, racy, gamy, meaty and savory aromas, this is a still a dense, potent, deeply concentrated and firmly tannic youngster, with loads of mineral, sage, currant and blackberry flavors. The tannins are still intense, so decanting is advised.
