    July 23, 2020 - Still so youthful, quite some fruit left cassis, oak, elegant, very long!

    December 16, 2019 - 1994 California Cabernet Blind Tasting (Michelangelo Hotel, New York): Ginger fungi nose. Very interesting and expressive and unique (like DRC or stinky Pomerols or Harlan).Dark and blue fruit. High acidity. Youthful with a long finish. My and another taster's WOTN but hugely controversial and divided the room. 94-95

    December 6, 2019 - Zachy's BYO 2019: Silky smooth tannin, new world cabernet at its best. Graceful composure with a properly aged fruit bouquet. 94-95

    November 8, 2019 - Napa Cult CabSav 1994 dinner (Singapore): Expressive nos, rich wine here, roasted aromas, toasty oak. Full bodied palate but with a spice element that keeps it fresh. Good but not among the best tonight, confirming my overall assessment of this wine.

    February 23, 2019 - So great when you open a 24 year old bottle and start decanting and awesome aromas hit you! Nice color, still looks relatively young. Drinking great. Loads of dark berry fruits and long long finish. Maybe less of the exotic cream flavors I recall from earlier days. Plenty of prime drinking left...maybe not what people expected of one of these Parker bombs.
