Horizontal Tasting of Napa Valley’s 1994 Cabernets

This past March I conducted a fascinating 20-years-after tasting of Napa Valley’s 1994 Cabernet Sauvignons and Bordeaux blends alongside my 10-years-after look at the 2004s. In many ways the experience was like tasting wines from two different generations. What made 1994 such a successful vintage for the North Coast’s big reds?

Carbone, New York

Carbone is quite the scene. Waiters in tuxedos work the room with flair, the music is loud and the place is literally jumping with energy. It all looks like something straight out of a 1950s mob movie.

2014 Castello di Ama Rosato ($24) 90 points

2014 Castello di Ama Rosato, 90 points

A wine of true pedigree, Castello di Ama's 2014 Rosato impresses for is its layered, silky personality and fabulous balance. Floral notes meld into expressive, red-fleshed fruit as this refined, beautifully resonant Rose shows off its inimitable class. (AG)


Cellar Favorites

Cuvee christine 08 alsace

2008 Schlumberger Gewürztraminer Cuvee Christine Vendages Tardives

I have long believed that Schlumberger’s best wines are their Gewürztraminers Cuvee Christine (a VT) and Cuvee Anne (an SGN). And given how fat and opulent Gewürztraminer wines can be, I especially like how well balanced and refined the Cuvee Christine always seems to be.
