Dark. The cusp of a stylistic transition.

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

Had this amazing find at dinner tonight, still a fantastic wine even after all these years.

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, 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.

Second bottle of this I've had, not quite as good as previous but still delicious. 13.9% alcohol. After having these old Caymus bottles one has to wonder if the new stuff will ever reach these heights.

From magnum. Still showing enough fruit. Was in a great place but drink up.

Balance & elegance shine through the entire experience. Full Cabernet flavor spectrum- red & black berries, leather, tobacco with a spicy finish. Tannins in balance with fruit. Much more elegant than my memory of this wine as a youngster. Bravo! Yes, we miss the wine making skills of Chuck.
