Tasting Notes: I decided to repeat my experiment from before with another 1994 from my cellar to taste and compare side by side with the current release. Building on the house style, winemaker Kevin Hall has done it again.95% Cab is layered with touches of Merlot, while hints of Cab Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot add fruit notes and seamless complexity. The 94 still had remnants of fruit and showed great structure…patience was rewarded here. The 2020 has beautiful dark fruit notes, firm tannins, and a rich elegant finish. These two were the highlight of this year.
