Friday Night Double Blind $30+ (Bin 75): Dark core, slightly cloudy, thin bricking; hard red currant, some plastic, cabbage, dill, cedar, sweet fruit, anise on the finish, structured; called '94 Napa Cab.
This definitely has some individual character, but I can't help to think that some blending with other vineyards would have rounded out the wine better. The wine starts out a bit short and unexpressive. After some air the fruit becomes more prominent and the tannins start to fan out. This wine, even at 15 years is very lean and young.
