1994 Cabernet Sauvignon 6L
Alder Yarrow - July, 2015
Medium to dark ruby in the glass with orange highlights, this wine smells of bacon fat and dried flowers layered over dried red fruit. In the mouth, gorgeous red fruits, crushed herbs, and mixed dried flowers have a fantastic aromatic brightness and just a hint of sweetness to them. Deeply mineral at the same time, this wine has a wonderful dried lavender and mixed herb aroma in the finish. Faint powdery tannins. Outstanding!
Score: Between 9 and 9.5

Dark ruby-garnet hue; still tannic, solid, tight and well-knit; muscle and sinew, lithe and deeply spicy, glittering minerality, vibrant and resonant. Needs three to five years aging. Terrific potential.
