vineyard 29 winery with view

29 Estate · 1994 · Cabernet Sauvignon


The Underground Wine Journal:

“…a lovely wine with great style—each new release is more opulent than the last.”

Robert Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate:

“The wine reveals a dark purple color, and straightforward, sweet, cassis aromas that jump from the glass…It is rich, medium to full-bodied, and dense, with plenty of tannins, excellent concentration…This wine will be at its best between the turn of the century and 2015.”

The Insiders’ Wine Line:

“Another winner from Vineyard 29.”

Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar:

“Lush entry, then juicy and delineated, with good acid backbone…”

The California Grapevine:

“Superior quality…should develop with another two to four years of bottle aging. Very highly recommended.”
