This hedonistic Cabernet Sauvignon's saturated purple color is accompanied by an exuberant, sweet, enveloping fragrance of smoky new oak, and jammy blackberry and cassis fruit. In the mouth, this lavishly wooded, black fruit-filled Cabernet is extremely full-bodied, with superb levels of fruit, glycerin, and extract. Like many 1994 Cabernet Sauvignons, it possesses extraordinary equilibrium, with the sweet tannin giving the wine considerable accessibility. The finish lasts for nearly 30 seconds. This will be a fun wine to drink young, but do not discount its aging ability as it should last for two decades. Robert Parker

Beautiful. Everything you want in a great cab. Richness, depth, round, energy. Really a great wine.

Mature Cabernet aromas of Cedar savoury Blackberry and Pipe Tobacco. Medium plus intensity on a medium bodied palate. All parts of this wine in harmony and drinking at its peak. Final bottle from my cellar - an excellent effort.

Loads of controversy over recent vintages of SS here on #delectableapp but none at all for me on this '94 beauty, perfectly stored for 20 years but acting like a baby. Aromas of liquorice and leather from the brick free, almost black pour. Velvety and large, but dancing across the palate, like Ali, but without the sting and all the butterfly. Charcoal, smoke. Dark chocolate and a sweet, sweet core. I'd bet big $$ this could go 20+ years, nowhere near its peak. Awesome.
