Dark blackish edges with just the slightest sign of age. The nose began as as habit to say 'old wine', which anyone who knows me, knows I’m not thrilled. But then this did an amazing transformation within 30 minutes. It was super pure and elegant and a truly memorable bottle of 14 year old cab.Admirable amounts of fruits: black currants, black cherry cola with some kirsch royal and a touch of crème de cassis. There was a touch of cedar, and tobacco notes with some tat and soy. Everything was hitting at all the right levels. A 45 second finish. Glad we did not judge this on first impressions. 93/100

Fantastic vibrant color. No sign of a 12 year old showing, not even on the edges. The nose shows is pure black currant and cassis. The palate reveals a super lush character with slightly sweet tannins, great dark fruit, some tar and leather. A great acid level that would make this great on my table with a grilled steak and frites. (soon). The finish is very long and smooth. I traded a 2003 Pride Cab Reserve for three of these and I think I did ok. :)92/100

...among the more forward opulently-styled 1995s. This attractive wine which has the potential to be outstanding exhibits a deep ruby/purple color and a friendly open-knit spicy sweet blackcurrant nose that borders on jamminess. Pure with a multi-layered texture excellent concentration sweet plush fat fruit decent acidity and a long lusty finish this Cabernet is reminiscent of a deep rich right bank Bordeaux made primarily from Merlot rather than Cabernet Sauvignon...

Remarkably complex and concentrated, with a dark, plush, focused core of ripe plum, black cherry, blackberry and spice. Turns rich on the long finish. Best from 2000 through 2008. 4,100 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1995 Simi Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County Reserve 750ml

A stunning wine with deep black-cherry plum and blackberry fruit. There are hints of licorice and chocolate in the center and the fruit grows more intense. The finish is long and elegant with layers of flavors. Wine Enthusiast.

...Raspberry mint and fresh herbs on the nose; showed a slight dill note with aeration. Supple and lush with intriguing hints of charred meat smoke and leather to go with the currant and raspberry flavors. Rather stylish wine with satisfying sweetness and a layered texture like right-bank Bordeaux. Quite ripe for 95 but with plenty of underlying structure. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
