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.

2013 Paul Cluver Estate Wines Chardonnay, 92 points

This energetic, extract-rich, cool-climate Chardonnay entices with its sexy aromas of white peach, lime, flowers and musky hazelnutty lees. It’s saline, fresh and rich on the palate, offering a solid core of stone fruit and mineral flavors and a tactile, dusty, lingering finish. (ST)

1985 Ceretto Barolo Bricco Rocche Brunate

Funnily enough, I have never been too impressed with Ceretto’s 1985s (an excellent vintage), but this Brunate is an absolute beauty.
