Mount Mary Cabernets Quintet 1994

I have had my doubts about various Mount Mary cabernet releases, but credit where it is due, this cabernet blend from Mount Mary from the 1994 vintage was stunning.  A light garnet in colour, it has aromatics that remind of cherry, autumn leaves, earth and cedar, with gathering intensity.  The palate is fully resolved, with flavours of smoke, cherry and earth.  This wine fills the palate and finishes with long length, and is certainly ready to drink now.
