Cracked open this '94 Cab in October 2009 over a steak dinner. Flavorful, bright, well balanced and food friendly. 12.5% alcohol. This evening turned out to be as much a history lesson in Napa cabs as a tasty wine and dinner. I wish Napa still made wines like this rather than the big alcohol laden-koolaid that's coming from most CA winemakers. We've been drinking this '94 cab for a number of years (well, since '94). It might be a little bit past it's peak but is still a very good drinker. Some notes: Nose: I absolutely love the nose on this as I do most good old wines: a little bit dusty, leathery, mature fruit. Color: Still a good, rich red cab color. No browning. Although the color may be a little thin on the pour and around the edges. Taste: The taste brings a little less than the nose. It's a little light. There's not a lot happening on the back of the mouth. Most of the flavor happens in the front and center of the mouth, but what you get in the mouth is immediate, full and refreshing. There's still a good amount of acid. The tannins have subsided to a manageable level and there's a mouthful of dried fruit in the taste. It worked great with our dinner. At this point it's almost more European in style than Napa cab.
