This formidable wine is among the superstars of the 1995 vintage. I do have one reservation with respect to this wine - some leesy, mercaptan notes in the nose are at first disconcerting. However, they quickly blow off as the wine is exposed to air. Once past that, the wine's opaque purple color and blueberry and exotic floral notes (orchids) are impressive. Ripe and dense, with fabulous flavor concentration, and a long, multi-layered, textured personality that caresses and saturates the palate with copious quantities of fruit, glycerin, and richness, this is a large-scaled, but beautifully balanced Cabernet Sauvignon that should be at its best with another 2-3 years of cellaring, and last for 15 or more years.
