EVENTS

Twenty five years rolls around, and it is time to evaluate one of my very favourite Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon vintages – 1994. There are a few reasons why this vintage has long been a favourite of mine. First of all, the growing season was relatively textbook, adequate but not excessive water, plenty of sunshine but an absence of heatwaves, ripening evolution was slow, with a fairly late harvest of healthy, complex grapes was on offer. Second of all, style. The fashion for bigger-is-better had not quite begun in 1994 (I think the floodgates opened there with the 1997s), yet the long period favouring a more austere style typified in the 1980s had largely ended. So for me, 1994 provides a style sweet spot from a vintage also prepared to give it. Finally, from the few 1994s I have tasted in recent years, time has not been unkind to well-cellared examples – long cellaring has delivered something worth waiting for.

Tonight however, is not a random survey of 1994. It’s a carefully curated collection of classics and cults!
