Horizontal Tasting of Napa Valley’s 1995 Cabernets

Based on my tastings this spring and last, Napa Valley’s 1995 Cabernets don’t quite match the ‘94s for their density, suavity of texture and overall balance. But the up-and-down 1995 growing season was nonetheless an outstanding vintage, having produced many aromatically complex and ageworthy wines.

Vinous Favorites

2014 Fox Run Semi-Dry Riesling ($14.00) 90 points

2014 Fox Run Semi-Dry Riesling, 90 points

This pale gold wine opens with scents of key lime, green apple, honeysuckle and a subtle flint. The palate is beautifully balanced, combining jangly acidity with a soft swish of sugar, though the overall impression of the wine is dry. A gorgeous wine at a terrific price. (KW)

1947 Cheval Blanc

I was quite relieved to see the cork emerge from this bottle pretty much intact. The 1947 Cheval Blanc is one of the world’s most rarified wines, so expectations were naturally running high.
